Can I have an utterance with only slot in it?

I want to define an intent that has an utterance of only the slot.e.g. I defined a slot empid of type AMAZON.NUMBER and specified only

{empid}

as a sample utterance of my intent. The model does not give any error, gets saved and build fine. However it does not match the content when I specify / speak out only a number. In fact it matches some other intent for which the only sample utterances that I have specified are 'sure' and 'yes'. Any ideas?

I believe it used to work a year ago.

I came across:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/48024733/how-can-alexa-take-a-slot-only-utterance/ which doesn't have any concluding working solution.

I think a workaround is to have at least one other sample utterance. Otherwise' I'd suggest posting it as a request over here.
