Hello - I have certified skill in our company account, and I need to transfer the skill new company. I have 'admin' level access in both companies developer accounts.
Transferring skills between accounts is not currently a supported feature of the Alexa skill development platform. That said, you do have a couple options at your disposal.
1. If you have access to both accounts in question, you may simply log into the new account, click "Add a New Skill" and copy and paste the pieces of metadata (like skill name, invocation name, sample utterances etc.) from the old account, to the new account. Please note, that if your back-end Lambda code validates the skill ID of incoming requests, it would need to be edited to recognize and accept the skill ID of the new skill entry under the new account.
If you then publish this duplicate skill under the new account, you may want the old version hidden from the Alexa skills store. In that event, file a contact us case with the name and skill ID of the old skill and let us know whether you'd like us to "soft" or "hard" suppress the original version. More information on that process can be found here:
2. Alternatively, if all you want to do is change the developer name that's displayed underneath your live skills in the Alexa skills store, you don't need to transfer anything at all. Instead, sign into your Amazon developer account and file a contact us case at the URL below telling us what you would like your new developer name to be instead and we can do this for you.
"our internal teams have reviewed this request and they will provide an update if it is implemented"
Really - if it is implemented?
My +1 on this too - this is insane - there is no mechanism to transfer skills between accounts? How can 3rd party developers easily provide a client with a turnkey product without also needing to gain access to that client's AWS account to implement it?
I, too, would like to see this implemented.
+1 for this as well. My company is being contracted by a large government organization to build a skill for them. I will need to develop on my account as they are unable to provide me with access to theirs.
