  2. By surfing the forums I found that a lot of users have problems validating their ssml. Constant issues are misplaced tags, unclosed tags, missing brackets or extra spaces inside of the tags.

    Because error message says only, that input was invalid users don't know what was invalid and they keep asking the same thing - to explain them what is wrong with their ssml, which most of the time is one of the problems I mentioned before.

    My suggestion would be to add a better validation for ssml, including 'Voice & Tone' tab. It should give better messages to at…

  3. Please make a note on the endpoint editor that alexa backend goes only on 443 port (in case of HTTPS). It's a bit cryptic.

  4. In the Build page, in the Intents list, it would be great to be able to order the Intents (move them up or down) to put them in whatever order the developer wants. I'd like to have mine ordered alphabetically. Same goes for Slots and Slots Types. Thanks!

  5. Increase the session time at-least for the developers account. We need to give quality of code right? Some times we may need to debug the code .

    Thank you for submitting an Alexa feature request. Your request has been received.

  8. There is a bug in the new Console. I cannot include both SSML and a question mark because validation says: "You can only have a '?' at the end of a prompt" but for SSML you need to have the closing </speak> tag.

  9. Validate invocation name, so that no 2 developments skills are able to have the same invocation name. When testing a skill in the test console, it was actually returning results from a different skill as they had identical invocation names

  10. With a push of a button allow people to copy all product information to all English enabled regions. This would cut down on developers having to cut copy and paste saving on average about a half hour of work.

  11. For some reason I cannot specify a Lambda endpoint which has an alias qualifier at the end. For example, I want to have two aliases: TEST and PROD that point to different versions of the lambda function.

    When I am trying to save the endpoint, it shows a "manifest error" message.

    It worked fine before. My other skills that were created using the old developer portal UI still have their endpoint

  14. Right now the only way to be removed as a member from other's people dev portal accounts is that an admin remove you, but I should be able to self-remove my account in some part of the https://developer.amazon.com website.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Octavio! We’ll get this routed over to the appropriate internal team for review.

  15. Change behaviour when saving endpoint.
    When saving a new endpoint, e.g. to a new lambda version a green pop-up appears. This most likely represents success for most users. But the text says, that the skill has to be build before the change becomes effective. This might easily be forgotten. For example, before I submit a skill for certification I always publish a new version of my lambda endpoint. If I forget to build the skill after adding that endpoint to the skill it might point to $LATEST. That means changes to the lambda would affect the skill in certification or…

  16. I have a certified skill, so now have a development copy hanging off it. I messed up the development version hanging off it. Is there a quick way to reset the development version back to the same as the live version to undo all my development changes?

    I think it would be great to make a button to do this. Otherwise, I will try to just delete the Interaction Model JSON.

  17. Alexa should only have to decide between the intents available inside of a handler. By integrating handler groupings into the Alexa Console the build process and NLP can take into account these more specific situations and will become more accurate deciding between the 3 intents in a specific handler as opposed to the 18 intents that are available.

  18. I work 8 hours a day like most developers, so I have to login 3 to 4 times a day because amazon developers log you off automatically every 2 hours? I understand its a security issue but I would like the option to maintain the session a little longer, or at the very least, extend the session duration if the developer is using the console.

  19. I get the error message:

    This may be due to an expired session, or a model that exceeds 1MB in size.

    which is new a new constraint, 3 month ago that same language model worked fine (in the old alexa console, which now also throws this error message). My language model is rather huge (~2.8MB), since I'm using the occupations model of the European Commission (ESCO: https://ec.europa.eu/esco/portal/occupation).

    It is very unfortunate that the custom types are counted against the 1 MB budget. If I used the built-in types, I could use more intents and example sentences in my languageModel.…

  20. When skill events were originally released last summer, they were only configurable from the SMAPI/CLI. The implicit reason at the time was "there's a new developer console coming, it's not worth it to implement new features on the old one".

    The new skill console is out now, and it still doesn't appear that there's a way to set my skill to use skill events.
