  • Volume - This resets the echo device's volume to the default value.
  • Notifications - This clears all notifications from your echo device.
  • Lists - This clears all to-do items from your echo device.
  • Settings - This internally syncs the room's profile (if the device is assigned to a room), contacts, address books, delegation access for account linking, and communications (if enabled on the room profile).

Where valid values are:

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
