Failed to save skill information

Trying to save a smart home skill, per the tutorial, and I'm getting the following error (SMART HOME tab), when saving the ARN for the lambda function:

Failed to save skill information

  • The requested content has an invalid property 'skillmanifest'.


Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Thanks! Seems to be working now.

I had to delete the trigger and re-add it as it was disabled and I could not get it to enable (enable->save and it was back to disabled).

Now it's working.

Same here, creating a skill via this tutorial: https://developer.amazon.com/docs/smarthome/steps-to-build-a-smart-home-skill.html

Same error message, same place: saving the ARN

Thanks for the help

Ditto here. Clicking the "Save" button on a simple Flash Briefing skill also results in the "skillmanifest" error message. Skill creation/saving appears to be broken across the board.

On the plus side, reviewers of Amazon skills who are processing the review queue today have fewer skills to process. If users can't create them, then they can't publish them and therefore the reviewers can't review them. Maybe they'll even get the entire queue cleared out and go home early!

Okay. It looks to be fixed now for me. I was able to click the Save button without the error appearing.
