The current problem for developers is that we do not receive a userId for Flask briefings. They are just 'dumb' (as in broadcast, non-personalized) RSS feeds.
A simple solution would be if the userId were provided in the request header for the RSS.
But which userId? It should be the userId of the Alexa Custom Skill associated with the Flash Briefing. This could be as simple as allowing us to specify the associated skill ID - either via drop-down or text field in the admin panel.
Alternatively, to specify the flash briefing in the custom skill as per Salman Akbari's suggestion.
