Alexa::ASK::Skill AuthenticationConfiguration

The AuthenticationConfiguration property type specifies the Login with Amazon (LWA) configuration used to authenticate with the Alexa service. Only Login with Amazon security profiles created through the Amazon Developer Console are supported for authentication. A Client ID, Client Secret, and Refresh Token are required. You can generate a Client ID and Client Secret by creating a new security profile on the Amazon Developer Portal or you can retrieve them from an existing profile. You can then produce the refresh token by providing the Client ID and Client Secret to the generate-lwa-tokens command in the ASK CLI.

AuthenticationConfiguration is a property of the Alexa::ASK::Skill resource.
