How can I discover devices by using custom skill instead of smart home skill?

I know that smart home skill has a discovery method to get the devices' list, but custom skill doesn't. Is there any similiar way in custom skill?

The only way I figure out is defining a custom slot named "DeviceName". But it doesn't work well because custom slot needs all possible value. What's worse, I have to figure out how to place {DeviceName} in my sentences.

Do you have any suggestion?

Device discovery within a custom skill is not supported currently and due to the limitations you outlined, we're unable to provide a recommended workaround.
