get-intent

Description

Returns information about an intent. In addition to the intent name, you must specify the intent version.

This operation requires permissions to perform the lex:GetIntent action.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-intent
--name <value>
--intent-version <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--name (string)

The name of the intent. The name is case sensitive.

--intent-version (string)

The version of the intent.

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Output

name -> (string)

The name of the intent.

description -> (string)

A description of the intent.

slots -> (list)

An array of intent slots configured for the intent.

(structure)

Identifies the version of a specific slot.

name -> (string)

The name of the slot.

description -> (string)

A description of the slot.

slotConstraint -> (string)

Specifies whether the slot is required or optional.

slotType -> (string)

The type of the slot, either a custom slot type that you defined or one of the built-in slot types.

slotTypeVersion -> (string)

The version of the slot type.

valueElicitationPrompt -> (structure)

The prompt that Amazon Lex uses to elicit the slot value from the user.

messages -> (list)

An array of objects, each of which provides a message string and its type. You can specify the message string in plain text or in Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML).

(structure)

The message object that provides the message text and its type.

contentType -> (string)

The content type of the message string.

content -> (string)

The text of the message.

groupNumber -> (integer)

Identifies the message group that the message belongs to. When a group is assigned to a message, Amazon Lex returns one message from each group in the response.

maxAttempts -> (integer)

The number of times to prompt the user for information.

responseCard -> (string)

A response card. Amazon Lex uses this prompt at runtime, in the PostText API response. It substitutes session attributes and slot values for placeholders in the response card. For more information, see ex-resp-card .

priority -> (integer)

Directs Amazon Lex the order in which to elicit this slot value from the user. For example, if the intent has two slots with priorities 1 and 2, AWS Amazon Lex first elicits a value for the slot with priority 1.

If multiple slots share the same priority, the order in which Amazon Lex elicits values is arbitrary.

sampleUtterances -> (list)

If you know a specific pattern with which users might respond to an Amazon Lex request for a slot value, you can provide those utterances to improve accuracy. This is optional. In most cases, Amazon Lex is capable of understanding user utterances.

(string)

responseCard -> (string)

A set of possible responses for the slot type used by text-based clients. A user chooses an option from the response card, instead of using text to reply.

obfuscationSetting -> (string)

Determines whether a slot is obfuscated in conversation logs and stored utterances. When you obfuscate a slot, the value is replaced by the slot name in curly braces ({}). For example, if the slot name is "full_name", obfuscated values are replaced with "{full_name}". For more information, see Slot Obfuscation .

defaultValueSpec -> (structure)

A list of default values for the slot. Default values are used when Amazon Lex hasn't determined a value for a slot. You can specify default values from context variables, session attributes, and defined values.

defaultValueList -> (list)

The default values for a slot. You can specify more than one default. For example, you can specify a default value to use from a matching context variable, a session attribute, or a fixed value.

The default value chosen is selected based on the order that you specify them in the list. For example, if you specify a context variable and a fixed value in that order, Amazon Lex uses the context variable if it is available, else it uses the fixed value.

(structure)

A default value for a slot.

defaultValue -> (string)

The default value for the slot. You can specify one of the following:

  • #context-name.slot-name - The slot value "slot-name" in the context "context-name."
  • {attribute} - The slot value of the session attribute "attribute."
  • 'value' - The discrete value "value."
