Your Alexa Dashboards Settings

Skill Manifest (Skill Management API)

The skill manifest is the JSON representation of your skill, and provides Alexa with all of the metadata required. The interaction model and account linking schemas, if used, are separate.

All images referenced in a skill manifest must be in PNG format.
