Exercise 1: Create an Amazon Lex Bot (AWS CLI) - Amazon Lex V1

If you are using Amazon Lex V2, refer to the Amazon Lex V2 guide instead.


If you are using Amazon Lex V1, we recommend upgrading your bots to Amazon Lex V2. We are no longer adding new features to V1 and strongly recommend using V2 for all new bots.

Exercise 1: Create an Amazon Lex Bot (AWS CLI)

In general, when you create bots, you:

  1. Create slot types to define the information that your bot will be working with.

  2. Create intents that define the user actions that your bot supports. Use the custom slot types that you created earlier to define the slots, or parameters, that your intent requires.

  3. Create a bot that uses the intents that you defined.

In this exercise you create and test a new Amazon Lex bot using the CLI. Use the JSON structures that we provide to create the bot. To run the commands in this exercise, you need to know the region where the commands will be run. For a list of regions, see Model Building Quotas .
