Defined in:



When passing ActiveContext as input to an Aws::Client method, you can use a vanilla Hash:

  name: "ActiveContextName", # required
  time_to_live: { # required
    time_to_live_in_seconds: 1,
    turns_to_live: 1,
  parameters: { # required
    "ParameterName" => "Text",

A context is a variable that contains information about the current state of the conversation between a user and Amazon Lex. Context can be set automatically by Amazon Lex when an intent is fulfilled, or it can be set at runtime using the PutContent, PutText, or PutSession operation.
