[ aws . lexv2-runtime ]

recognize-text

Description

Sends user input to Amazon Lex V2. Client applications use this API to send requests to Amazon Lex V2 at runtime. Amazon Lex V2 then interprets the user input using the machine learning model that it build for the bot.

In response, Amazon Lex V2 returns the next message to convey to the user and an optional response card to display.

If the optional post-fulfillment response is specified, the messages are returned as follows. For more information, see PostFulfillmentStatusSpecification .

  • Success message - Returned if the Lambda function completes successfully and the intent state is fulfilled or ready fulfillment if the message is present.
  • Failed message - The failed message is returned if the Lambda function throws an exception or if the Lambda function returns a failed intent state without a message.
  • Timeout message - If you don't configure a timeout message and a timeout, and the Lambda function doesn't return within 30 seconds, the timeout message is returned. If you configure a timeout, the timeout message is returned when the period times out.

For more information, see Completion message .

dialogAction -> (structure)

The next step that Amazon Lex V2 should take in the conversation with a user.

type -> (string)

The next action that the bot should take in its interaction with the user. The possible values are:

  • Close - Indicates that there will not be a response from the user. For example, the statement "Your order has been placed" does not require a response.
  • ConfirmIntent - The next action is asking the user if the intent is complete and ready to be fulfilled. This is a yes/no question such as "Place the order?"
  • Delegate - The next action is determined by Amazon Lex V2.
  • ElicitSlot - The next action is to elicit a slot value from the user.

The current value of the slot.

originalValue -> (string)

The text of the utterance from the user that was entered for the slot.

--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.
