Error saving interaction model Bad request

Hi, I am working on a alexa skill and on Alexa skills builder I can't save / build my skill with a Intent slot (Answer for a Trivia Skill) all I get is when I try is Error saving interaction model Bad request If I remove the custom intent slot (Answer) it works perfectly fine. Is this error from my side or is it a Skills Builder error?

Thanks

Anush.

Hi Anush,

We have tried building skills using Launch Builder in our side and we have no issues. This might be a intermittent issue. Please try to build it again and see if your are getting this issue again.

Please refer below link for more details about the custom slots.

https://developer.amazon.com/docs/custom-skills/migrate-to-the-improved-built-in-and-custom-slot-types.html

If possible please share the Intent JSON file which you want to create for your skill.

Hi Anand, I'm having the same problem. Are you having any issues with the Builder at the moment? I have attached the full JSON for your reference (workspace.txt).

Hi Chris,

Sorry for delay in response. This Skill builder still in beta stage and in development phase.

Skill builder is not capable of handling large no of intents and slot values which you can directly paste it in Intent schema box and utterance text box.

You should not get any issue with the JSON file which you mentioned here.

But let us know if you still getting this issue with skill builder.

Hi, I have the same or at least a related issue. As soon as I add a custom slot type in Skill Builder Beta to my skill, "Save Model" will always return with HTTP 400 / "Bad Request" - no additional information provided.

i just figured out, the skill builder parse empty sections of the configuration as valid but save model does not accept them.

@nils.mueller alluded to the fix above, but to further clarify: this issue can be resolved by assigning a Slot Type to each custom slot. For example, a slot {travelDate} can be assigned the AMAZON.DATE slot type.

Hi,

As correctly mentioned by @thensg if you are using any slot in utterance text then either create a custom slot type or use in-built slot type but assign slot type but don't left it blank.

Custom slot type is mandatory field while building interaction model.
