Can fulfil intent request is used only as a fallback for alexa, when she doesn't know what user wants, she then tries to send bunch of can fulfil requests to the skills, that might be able to help user with their request, so you shouldn't expect it getting invoked too often. I think one of the alexa streamers last week said, that more stuff is coming in regards to can fulfil and skill discoverability, so you should keep an eye on alexa blog for the latest news.

But for our case,we had implemented the canfulfillintent request functionality for all the cases and also even it didn't recognize the utterances.Any idea of how it should implement properly using node js

Hello and thank you for your message.

Sorry it took so long to get back at you.

The CanFulfillIntentRequest interface is currently in public beta so you may not see CanFulfillIntentRequest calls even after onboarding for several weeks. If your skill is eligible for name free interactions, you may observe a ramp up in the number of CanFulfillIntentRequest calls, as well as follow-up IntentRequest calls, over the next few weeks in public beta.

Regards,
Barry
