Synopsis

Invokes the PutSlotType operation against Amazon Lex Model Building Service.

Syntax

Write-LMBSlotType
-Name <String>
-Checksum <String>
-Description <String>
-EnumerationValue <EnumerationValue[]>
-ValueSelectionStrategy <SlotValueSelectionStrategy>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Creates a custom slot type or replaces an existing custom slot type. To create a custom slot type, specify a name for the slot type and a set of enumeration values, which are the values that a slot of this type can assume. For more information, see how-it-works. If you specify the name of an existing slot type, the fields in the request replace the existing values in the $LATEST version of the slot type. Amazon Lex removes the fields that you don't provide in the request. If you don't specify required fields, Amazon Lex throws an exception. This operation requires permissions for the lex:PutSlotType action.

Parameters

-Checksum <String>
Identifies a specific revision of the $LATEST version.When you create a new slot type, leave the checksum field blank. If you specify a checksum you get a BadRequestException exception.When you want to update a slot type, set the checksum field to the checksum of the most recent revision of the $LATEST version. If you don't specify the checksum field, or if the checksum does not match the $LATEST version, you get a PreconditionFailedException exception.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-Description <String>
A description of the slot type.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-EnumerationValue <EnumerationValue[]>
A list of EnumerationValue objects that defines the values that the slot type can take. Each value can have a list of synonyms, which are additional values that help train the machine learning model about the values that it resolves for a slot. When Amazon Lex resolves a slot value, it generates a resolution list that contains up to five possible values for the slot. If you are using a Lambda function, this resolution list is passed to the function. If you are not using a Lambda function you can choose to return the value that the user entered or the first value in the resolution list as the slot value. The valueSelectionStrategy field indicates the option to use.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-Force <SwitchParameter>
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-Name <String>
The name of the slot type. The name is not case sensitive. The name can't match a built-in slot type name, or a built-in slot type name with "AMAZON." removed. For example, because there is a built-in slot type called AMAZON.DATE, you can't create a custom slot type called DATE.For a list of built-in slot types, see Slot Type Reference in the Alexa Skills Kit.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, )
-ValueSelectionStrategy <SlotValueSelectionStrategy>
Determines the slot resolution strategy that Amazon Lex uses to return slot type values. The field can be set to one of the following values:
  • ORIGINAL_VALUE - Returns the value entered by the user, if the user value is similar to the slot value.
  • TOP_RESOLUTION - If there is a resolution list for the slot, return the first value in the resolution list as the slot type value. If there is no resolution list, null is returned.
If you don't specify the valueSelectionStrategy, the default is ORIGINAL_VALUE.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileLocation <String>

Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)

If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.

As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Region <String>
The system name of the AWS region in which the operation should be invoked. For example, us-east-1, eu-west-1 etc.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-EndpointUrl <String>

The endpoint to make the call against.

Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False

Inputs

You can pipe a String object to this cmdlet for the Name parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a Amazon.LexModelBuildingService.Model.PutSlotTypeResponse object containing multiple properties. The object can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
