LexModelBuildingService

Client

class LexModelBuildingService.Client

A low-level client representing Amazon Lex Model Building Service:

client = session.create_client('lex-models')

These are the available methods:

can_paginate(operation_name)

Check if an operation can be paginated.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Returns
True if the operation can be paginated, False otherwise.
create_bot_version(**kwargs)

Creates a new version of the bot based on the $LATEST version. If the $LATEST version of this resource hasn't changed since you created the last version, Amazon Lex doesn't create a new version. It returns the last created version.

Note

You can update only the $LATEST version of the bot. You can't update the numbered versions that you create with the CreateBotVersion operation.

When you create the first version of a bot, Amazon Lex sets the version to 1. Subsequent versions increment by 1. For more information, see versioning-intro .

This operation requires permission for the lex:CreateBotVersion action.

If a bot has an alias, you can't delete it. Instead, the DeleteBot operation returns a ResourceInUseException exception that includes a reference to the alias that refers to the bot. To remove the reference to the bot, delete the alias. If you get the same exception again, delete the referring alias until the DeleteBot operation is successful.

This operation requires permissions for the lex:DeleteBot action.

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.delete_bot(
    name='string'
)
Parameters
name (string) --

[REQUIRED]

The name of the bot. The name is case sensitive.

Returns
None
delete_bot_alias(**kwargs)

Deletes an alias for the specified bot.

You can't delete an alias that is used in the association between a bot and a messaging channel. If an alias is used in a channel association, the DeleteBot operation returns a ResourceInUseException exception that includes a reference to the channel association that refers to the bot. You can remove the reference to the alias by deleting the channel association. If you get the same exception again, delete the referring association until the DeleteBotAlias operation is successful.

get_utterances_view(**kwargs)

Use the GetUtterancesView operation to get information about the utterances that your users have made to your bot. You can use this list to tune the utterances that your bot responds to.

For example, say that you have created a bot to order flowers. After your users have used your bot for a while, use the GetUtterancesView operation to see the requests that they have made and whether they have been successful. You might find that the utterance "I want flowers" is not being recognized. You could add this utterance to the OrderFlowers intent so that your bot recognizes that utterance.

After you publish a new version of a bot, you can get information about the old version and the new so that you can compare the performance across the two versions.

Data is available for the last 15 days. You can request information for up to 5 versions in each request. The response contains information about a maximum of 100 utterances for each version.

If the bot's childDirected field is set to true , utterances for the bot are not stored and cannot be retrieved with the GetUtterancesView operation. For more information, see .

This operation requires permissions for the lex:GetUtterancesView action.

get_waiter(waiter_name)
put_bot(**kwargs)

Creates an Amazon Lex conversational bot or replaces an existing bot. When you create or update a bot you only required to specify a name. You can use this to add intents later, or to remove intents from an existing bot. When you create a bot with a name only, the bot is created or updated but Amazon Lex returns the ```` response FAILED . You can build the bot after you add one or more intents. For more information about Amazon Lex bots, see how-it-works .

If you specify the name of an existing bot, the fields in the request replace the existing values in the $LATEST version of the bot. Amazon Lex removes any fields that you don't provide values for in the request, except for the idleTTLInSeconds and privacySettings fields, which are set to their default values. If you don't specify values for required fields, Amazon Lex throws an exception.

This operation requires permissions for the lex:PutBot action. For more information, see auth-and-access-control .

Parameters
  • name (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the bot. The name is not case sensitive.

  • description (string) -- A description of the bot.
  • intents (list) --

    An array of Intent objects. Each intent represents a command that a user can express. For example, a pizza ordering bot might support an OrderPizza intent. For more information, see how-it-works .

    • (dict) --

      Identifies the specific version of an intent.

      • intentName (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The name of the intent.

      • intentVersion (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The version of the intent.

  • clarificationPrompt (dict) --

    When Amazon Lex doesn't understand the user's intent, it uses one of these messages to get clarification. For example, "Sorry, I didn't understand. Please repeat." Amazon Lex repeats the clarification prompt the number of times specified in maxAttempts . If Amazon Lex still can't understand, it sends the message specified in abortStatement .

    • messages (list) -- [REQUIRED]

      An array of objects, each of which provides a message string and its type. You can specify the message string in plain text or in Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML).

      • (dict) --

        The message object that provides the message text and its type.

        • contentType (string) -- [REQUIRED]

          The content type of the message string.

        • content (string) -- [REQUIRED]

          The text of the message.

    • maxAttempts (integer) -- [REQUIRED]

      The number of times to prompt the user for information.

    • responseCard (string) --

      A response card. Amazon Lex uses this prompt at runtime, in the PostText API response. It substitutes session attributes and slot values for placeholders in the response card. For more information, see ex-resp-card .

  • abortStatement (dict) --

    When Amazon Lex can't understand the user's input in context, it tries to elicit the information a few times. After that, Amazon Lex sends the message defined in abortStatement to the user, and then aborts the conversation. To set the number of retries, use the valueElicitationPrompt field for the slot type.

    For example, in a pizza ordering bot, Amazon Lex might ask a user "What type of crust would you like?" If the user's response is not one of the expected responses (for example, "thin crust, "deep dish," etc.), Amazon Lex tries to elicit a correct response a few more times.

    For example, in a pizza ordering application, OrderPizza might be one of the intents. This intent might require the CrustType slot. You specify the valueElicitationPrompt field when you create the CrustType slot.

    • messages (list) -- [REQUIRED]

      A collection of message objects.

      • (dict) --

        The message object that provides the message text and its type.

        • contentType (string) -- [REQUIRED]

          The content type of the message string.

        • content (string) -- [REQUIRED]

          The text of the message.

    • responseCard (string) --

      At runtime, if the client is using the API, Amazon Lex includes the response card in the response. It substitutes all of the session attributes and slot values for placeholders in the response card.

  • idleSessionTTLInSeconds (integer) --

    The maximum time in seconds that Amazon Lex retains the data gathered in a conversation.

    A user interaction session remains active for the amount of time specified. If no conversation occurs during this time, the session expires and Amazon Lex deletes any data provided before the timeout.

    For example, suppose that a user chooses the OrderPizza intent, but gets sidetracked halfway through placing an order. If the user doesn't complete the order within the specified time, Amazon Lex discards the slot information that it gathered, and the user must start over.

    If you don't include the idleSessionTTLInSeconds element in a PutBot operation request, Amazon Lex uses the default value. This is also true if the request replaces an existing bot.

    The default is 300 seconds (5 minutes).

  • voiceId (string) -- The Amazon Parrot voice ID that you want Amazon Lex to use for voice interactions with the user. The locale configured for the voice must match the locale of the bot. For more information, see Voice in the Amazon Polly Developer Guide .
  • checksum (string) --

    Identifies a specific revision of the $LATEST version.

    When you create a new bot, leave the checksum field blank. If you specify a checksum you get a BadRequestException exception.

    When you want to update a bot, set the checksum field to the checksum of the most recent revision of the $LATEST version. If you don't specify the checksum field, or if the checksum does not match the $LATEST version, you get a PreconditionFailedException exception.

  • processBehavior (string) --

    If you set the processBehavior element to Build , Amazon Lex builds the bot so that it can be run. If you set the element to Save Amazon Lex saves the bot, but doesn't build it.

    If you don't specify this value, the default value is Save .

  • locale (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Specifies the target locale for the bot. Any intent used in the bot must be compatible with the locale of the bot.

    The default is en-US .

  • childDirected (boolean) --

    [REQUIRED]

    For each Amazon Lex bot created with the Amazon Lex Model Building Service, you must specify whether your use of Amazon Lex is related to a website, program, or other application that is directed or targeted, in whole or in part, to children under age 13 and subject to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) by specifying true or false in the childDirected field. By specifying true in the childDirected field, you confirm that your use of Amazon Lex is related to a website, program, or other application that is directed or targeted, in whole or in part, to children under age 13 and subject to COPPA. By specifying false in the childDirected field, you confirm that your use of Amazon Lex is not related to a website, program, or other application that is directed or targeted, in whole or in part, to children under age 13 and subject to COPPA. You may not specify a default value for the childDirected field that does not accurately reflect whether your use of Amazon Lex is related to a website, program, or other application that is directed or targeted, in whole or in part, to children under age 13 and subject to COPPA.

    If your use of Amazon Lex relates to a website, program, or other application that is directed in whole or in part, to children under age 13, you must obtain any required verifiable parental consent under COPPA. For information regarding the use of Amazon Lex in connection with websites, programs, or other applications that are directed or targeted, in whole or in part, to children under age 13, see the Amazon Lex FAQ.

put_intent(**kwargs)

Creates an intent or replaces an existing intent.

To define the interaction between the user and your bot, you use one or more intents. For a pizza ordering bot, for example, you would create an OrderPizza intent.

To create an intent or replace an existing intent, you must provide the following:

  • Intent name. For example, OrderPizza .
  • Sample utterances. For example, "Can I order a pizza, please." and "I want to order a pizza."
  • Information to be gathered. You specify slot types for the information that your bot will request from the user. You can specify standard slot types, such as a date or a time, or custom slot types such as the size and crust of a pizza.
  • How the intent will be fulfilled. You can provide a Lambda function or configure the intent to return the intent information to the client application. If you use a Lambda function, when all of the intent information is available, Amazon Lex invokes your Lambda function. If you configure your intent to return the intent information to the client application.

You can specify other optional information in the request, such as:

  • A confirmation prompt to ask the user to confirm an intent. For example, "Shall I order your pizza?"
  • A conclusion statement to send to the user after the intent has been fulfilled. For example, "I placed your pizza order."
  • A follow-up prompt that asks the user for additional activity. For example, asking "Do you want to order a drink with your pizza?"

If you specify an existing intent name to update the intent, Amazon Lex replaces the values in the $LATEST version of the slot type with the values in the request. Amazon Lex removes fields that you don't provide in the request. If you don't specify the required fields, Amazon Lex throws an exception.

For more information, see how-it-works .

This operation requires permissions for the lex:PutIntent action.

Parameters
  • name (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the intent. The name is not case sensitive.

    The name can't match a built-in intent name, or a built-in intent name with "AMAZON." removed. For example, because there is a built-in intent called AMAZON.HelpIntent , you can't create a custom intent called HelpIntent .

    For a list of built-in intents, see Standard Built-in Intents in the Alexa Skills Kit .

  • description (string) -- A description of the intent.
  • slots (list) --

    An array of intent slots. At runtime, Amazon Lex elicits required slot values from the user using prompts defined in the slots. For more information, see xref linkend="how-it-works"/.

    • (dict) --

      Identifies the version of a specific slot.

      • name (string) -- [REQUIRED]

      • priority (integer) --

        Directs Lex the order in which to elicit this slot value from the user. For example, if the intent has two slots with priorities 1 and 2, AWS Lex first elicits a value for the slot with priority 1.

        If multiple slots share the same priority, the order in which Lex elicits values is arbitrary.

      • sampleUtterances (list) --

        If you know a specific pattern with which users might respond to an Amazon Lex request for a slot value, you can provide those utterances to improve accuracy. This is optional. In most cases, Amazon Lex is capable of understanding user utterances.

        • (string) --
      • responseCard (string) --

        A set of possible responses for the slot type used by text-based clients. A user chooses an option from the response card, instead of using text to reply.

  • sampleUtterances (list) --

    An array of utterances (strings) that a user might say to signal the intent. For example, "I want {PizzaSize} pizza", "Order {Quantity} {PizzaSize} pizzas".

    In each utterance, a slot name is enclosed in curly braces.

    • (string) --
  • confirmationPrompt (dict) --

    Prompts the user to confirm the intent. This question should have a yes or no answer.

    Amazon Lex uses this prompt to ensure that the user acknowledges that the intent is ready for fulfillment. For example, with the OrderPizza intent, you might want to confirm that the order is correct before placing it. For other intents, such as intents that simply respond to user questions, you might not need to ask the user for confirmation before providing the information.

put_slot_type(**kwargs)

Creates a custom slot type or replaces an existing custom slot type.

To create a custom slot type, specify a name for the slot type and a set of enumeration values, which are the values that a slot of this type can assume. For more information, see how-it-works .

If you specify the name of an existing slot type, the fields in the request replace the existing values in the $LATEST version of the slot type. Amazon Lex removes the fields that you don't provide in the request. If you don't specify required fields, Amazon Lex throws an exception.

This operation requires permissions for the lex:PutSlotType action.

Request Syntax

response = client.put_slot_type(
    name='string',
    description='string',
    enumerationValues=[
        {
            'value': 'string'
        },
    ],
    checksum='string'
)
Parameters
  • name (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of the slot type. The name is not case sensitive.

    The name can't match a built-in slot type name, or a built-in slot type name with "AMAZON." removed. For example, because there is a built-in slot type called AMAZON.DATE , you can't create a custom slot type called DATE .

    For a list of built-in slot types, see Slot Type Reference in the Alexa Skills Kit .

  • description (string) -- A description of the slot type.
  • enumerationValues (list) --

    A list of EnumerationValue objects that defines the values that the slot type can take.

    • (dict) --

      Each slot type can have a set of values. Each enumeration value represents a value the slot type can take.

      For example, a pizza ordering bot could have a slot type that specifies the type of crust that the pizza should have. The slot type could include the values

      • thick
      • thin
      • stuffed
      • value (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        The value of the slot type.

  • checksum (string) --

    Identifies a specific revision of the $LATEST version.

    When you create a new slot type, leave the checksum field blank. If you specify a checksum you get a BadRequestException exception.

    When you want to update a slot type, set the checksum field to the checksum of the most recent revision of the $LATEST version. If you don't specify the checksum field, or if the checksum does not match the $LATEST version, you get a PreconditionFailedException exception.
