Standard Built-in Intents

The standard intents are used for common, general actions such as stopping, canceling, and asking for help.

To implement a standard built-in intent, include the intent in your intent schema and then add handling for the intent in your code. You do not need to provide any sample utterances for these intents, although you can if you want to extend the intent.

See Implement the Built-in Intents.

About canceling and stopping

Separate intents are provided for canceling and stopping for situations in which your skill needs to distinguish between the two concepts. This lets "cancel" have a meaning distinct from "stop." However, in most skills, the behavior should be the same for both. Since most users stay "stop," "cancel," and related phrases to exit skills, we strongly recommend that you map this to exit behavior unless your skill has a good reason not to. Note that this is also a requirement of the skill certification process (see certification requirements for stopping and canceling). In this case, you can use the same intent handler for both intents.

Example of using AMAZON.CancelIntent to exit a skill:

User: Alexa, Open Tide Pooler.
Tide Pooler: Tide Pooler: Welcome to Tide Pooler. Which city would you like tide information for?
User: Never mind. (Sends an IntentRequest with an AMAZON.CancelIntent)
Alexa: Tide Pooler: Good-bye. (Response closes the session by setting the shouldEndSession flag to true)
(Skill exits).

Alternative use of AMAZON.CancelIntent to cancel a transaction, but remain within the skill:

…earlier portion of interaction, with the user ordering a pizza.
My Pizza: Confirming order for a large pepperoni and mushroom pizza. Is that correct?
User: Cancel. (Sends an IntentRequest with an AMAZON.CancelIntent)
My Pizza: Canceling order. Did you want to order something else? (Response asks a question and keeps the session open by setting shouldEndSession to false.)
User: Order a small Italian sausage pizza. (User's new request mapped to an appropriate skill-specific intent)
…(interaction continues)

Also note that users can use the wake word to interrupt Alexa while she is speaking a response. This is often used to stop a skill during lengthy text to speech. If the user's command maps to one of your intents (either a custom intent or one of the built-in intents), your service receives an IntentRequest like normal. For example:

User: Alexa, Ask Tide Pooler for high tides in Monterey.
Tide Pooler: Tide Pooler: Today in Monterey, the first high tide… (Interrupt Alexa before the skill completes the response)
User: Alexa, Stop. (Sends an IntentRequest with an AMAZON.StopIntent)
Tide Pooler: Good-bye. (Response closes the session by setting the shouldEndSession flag to true)
(Skill exits).

User: Laisse tomber. (Sends an IntentRequest with an AMAZON.CancelIntent)
Alexa: Voyages en Villes: Bye. (Response closes the session by setting the shouldEndSession flag to true)
(Skill exits).

Alternative use of AMAZON.CancelIntent to cancel a transaction, but remain within the skill:

…earlier portion of interaction, with the user ordering a pizza.
Ma pizza: Vous confirmez votre commande d'une grande pizza champignons. Est-ce correct?
User: Annule. (Sends an IntentRequest with an AMAZON.CancelIntent)
Ma Pizza: J'annule cette commande. Souhaitez-vous autre chose? (Response asks a question and keeps the session open by setting shouldEndSession to false.)
User: Je veux plutôt une petite pizza pepperoni. (User's new request mapped to an appropriate skill-specific intent)
…(interaction continues)

Voyages en Villes: Voyages en Villes: L'atonium à Bruxelles est ouvert de 10 heure a 18 heure tous les jours de la semaine… (Interrupt Alexa before the skill completes the response)
User: Alexa, arrête. (Sends an IntentRequest with an AMAZON.StopIntent)
Voyages en Villes: Bye. (Response closes the session by setting the shouldEndSession flag to true)
(Skill exits).

Separate intents are provided for canceling and stopping for situations in which your skill needs to distinguish between the two concepts. This lets "annulla" have a meaning distinct from "ferma." However, in most skills, the behavior should be the same for both. Since most users stay "ferma," "annulla," and related phrases to exit skills, we strongly recommend that you map this to exit behavior unless your skill has a good reason not to. Note that this is also a requirement of the skill certification process (see certification requirements for stopping and canceling). In this case, you can use the same intent handler for both intents.

Example of using AMAZON.CancelIntent to exit a skill:

User: Alexa, Apri Vacanze in Città.
Vacanze in Città: Vacanze in Città: Benvenuto a Vacanze in Città. Quale città vorresti visitare?
User: Lascia stare. (Sends an IntentRequest with an AMAZON.CancelIntent)
Alexa: Vacanze in Città: Ciao. (Response closes the session by setting the shouldEndSession flag to true)
(Skill exits).

Alternative use of AMAZON.CancelIntent to cancel a transaction, but remain within the skill:

…earlier portion of interaction, with the user ordering a pizza.
La Mia Pizza: Vuoi confermare un ordine per una pizza grande con prosciutto e funghi. È corretto?
User: Annulla. (Sends an IntentRequest with an AMAZON.CancelIntent)
La Mia Pizza: Ordine annullato. Vuoi ordinare qualcos'altro? (Response asks a question and keeps the session open by setting shouldEndSession to false.)
User: Ordina una pizza con salsiccia. (User's new request mapped to an appropriate skill-specific intent)
…(interaction continues)

Vacanze in Città: Vacanze in Città: Il Colosseo è aperto tutti i giorni e segue i seguenti orari… (Interrupt Alexa before the skill completes the response)
User: Alexa, basta. (Sends an IntentRequest with an AMAZON.StopIntent)
Vacanze in Città: Ciao (Response closes the session by setting the shouldEndSession flag to true)
(Skill exits).

Provide a fall back for unmatched utterances

The AMAZON.FallbackIntent (available in English locales and German) is triggered when the user's spoken input does not match any of the other intents in the skill. AMAZON.FallbackIntent is matched to an automatically-generated out-of-domain model.

An out-of-domain model represents everything that Alexa can recognize, excluding the model you provide with your own intents and utterances. When you include AMAZON.FallbackIntent in your skill and then build your interaction model, Alexa generates this out-of-domain model. This model can then catch utterances that do not match your defined intents and send your skill the AMAZON.FallbackIntent.

The built-in AMAZON.FallbackIntent provides better accuracy than if you created your own "fall back" intent since the out-of-domain model can cover a much larger range of utterances. Also, each time you rebuild your interaction model, the out-of-domain model for AMAZON.FallbackIntent is also rebuilt to reflect any changes you may have made.

Note that a very low-confidence user utterance, such as unintelligible speech or background noise, can still trigger your skill's reprompt instead of AMAZON.FallbackIntent.

As with all built-in intents, you provide a handler that can give the user an appropriate response. This is usually a prompt to let the user know that they asked for something your skill does not do and provide guidance back to your skill's functionality. Your prompt should also remind the user that they are interacting with your skill. For example:

User: Alexa, open Plan My Trip
Alexa: Let's plan a trip. Where did you want to go?
User: What's the weather in Chicago? (This utterance does not match any of the intents in Plan my Trip.)
Since this utterance does not match any intent in the interaction model, Alexa sends the skill AMAZON.FallbackIntent.

Alexa: The Plan My Trip skill can't help with that, but I can help you look up flights and plan trips to other places. Where would you like to go? (The response includes the skill's name to help re-orient the user.)

If you need to fine-tune the model for the AMAZON.FallbackIntent, you can extend it with additional utterances.

AMAZON.FallbackIntent and Dialog.Delegate

The Dialog.Delegate directive lets Alexa automatically prompt the user to fill in required slots in a dialog, based on a defined dialog model. The AMAZON.FallbackIntent is not normally triggered during this dialog. When Alexa prompts the user to fill a required slot, the voice model is biased to listen for the specific utterances defined for that slot in the dialog model. If the user says something that would be "out-of-domain", Alexa asks for the slot again.

However, if you extend AMAZON.FallbackIntent with additional utterances, those extended utterances can trigger the intent even during slot elicitation.

AMAZON.FallbackIntent and intent request history

You can access aggregated and anonymized utterances with the Intent Request History API or the Intent History page in the developer console. This gives you a view into how users interact with your skill. You can view the utterances and the intents that Alexa triggered.

This is especially useful if you use AMAZON.FallbackIntent since you can see the utterances that users attempted to use when interacting with your skill. This is a useful way to see functionality users may be expecting, or common misspoken phrases that you may want to add to your skill. In the "plan my trip" example, if a large number of users often ask about the weather in a destination city, you may want to add this functionality to the skill.

Note that the intent request history data does not provide all utterances for your skill. For details, see:

Let users select items with SelectIntent

The AMAZON.SelectIntent built-in intent lets users indicate that they want to select an item. Unlike the other standard built-in intents, AMAZON.SelectIntent is defined with four slots that collect information about the item the user wants to select.

AMAZON.SelectIntent slots

Slot name Description/Example Slot type

Anaphor

Captures words that are anaphors representing an item, such as "this", "that", and "it".

  • "Select that item": that
  • "Pick this option": this

AMAZON.Anaphor

ListPosition

Captures an ordinal position such as "first" or "second" and converts it to a number:

  • "Get the fourth option": 4
  • "Select third entry": 3
  • "Select fifth item": 5

AMAZON.Ordinal

PositionRelation

Captures words the represent the relative position of an item in a list, such as "top", "bottom", or "last":

  • Get top result: top
  • Get last result: last

AMAZON.RelativePosition

VisualModeTrigger

Captures words that indicate the user is expecting a visual response, such as "show" or "display".

  • Show the first option: show
  • Display that item: display

Note that you may get a value in this slot in combination with any of the other AMAZON.SelectIntent slots. For instance, the utterance "show the first item" would return show in VisualModeTrigger and 1 in ListPosition. See an example.

AMAZON.VisualModeTrigger

You cannot extend AMAZON.SelectIntent

Unlike the other standard built-in intents, you cannot extend AMAZON.SelectIntent with your own custom utterances.

Example: IntentRequest with the ListPostion and VisualModeTrigger slots

This example illustrates an utterance that specifies both an ordinal list position and a word that indicate the user expects a visual response. The IntentRequest includes both VisualModeTrigger and ItemPosition slots.

User: Show the fifth result

As with any other built-in intents, skill developers must include the desired intents in their skill's intent schema. These include intents that are handled on the skills' behalf do not need to be handled in the skill’s service (AWS Lambda or web service).

Developers must ensure that they include the entire name of the intent, including the prefix AMAZON. when referencing the intent in their code.

Scroll intents

These AMAZON.Scroll* intents are generated by the Alexa-enabled devices with a screen when templates are displayed. The display template on the screen must support scrolling in order for these intents, and their equivalent intents, to work. If used with APL Scrollview or APL Sequence, the relevant component must be assigned a component id.

  • AMAZON.ScrollUpIntent

  • AMAZON.ScrollLeftIntent

  • AMAZON.ScrollDownIntent

  • AMAZON.ScrollRightIntent

In this scenario, the intents are handled by Alexa and corresponding commands to the screen device are generated.

Page intents

These Page intents are equivalent in effect to the AMAZON.ScrollUp and AMAZON.ScrollDown intents. If used with APL Scrollview or APL Sequence, the relevant component must be assigned a component id.

  • AMAZON.PageUpIntent

  • AMAZON.PageDownIntent

They are generated by the Alexa-enabled device with a screen when templates that can be paged up or down are displayed, and the customer uses one of these commands (such as "Alexa, page up" or "Alexa, page down". They are handled by Alexa and corresponding commands to the screen device are generated.

AMAZON.MoreIntent

The AMAZON.MoreIntent will advance to show more of the content and is therefore similar to the AMAZON.ScrollDownIntent and AMAZON.ScrollRightIntent intents. If used with APL Scrollview or APL Sequence, the relevant component must be assigned a component id.

AMAZON.NavigateHomeIntent

The AMAZON.NavigateHomeIntent is active on only screen devices where it exits the skill and returns customers to the home screen. Common commands are “Alexa, go home”, “Alexa, go to the home screen”, and “Alexa, go to my home page”.

This intent is automatically added to your interaction model after you save your model. The intent is handled by Alexa so you do not need to create an intent handler for it as long as your skill properly handles "exit" requests as required. If your skill has a custom utterance that overlaps with AMAZON.NavigateHomeIntent, your custom intent takes precedence and those utterances invoke your intent instead.

Intents forwarded to the skill

These built-in intents may have a different implementation than the default. However, if you choose to give them a non-default implementation, do not include the back button in your templates, because AMAZON.PreviousIntent and the back button operate equivalently. By default, these intents operate in a linear backwards and forwards direction.

  • AMAZON.PreviousIntent
  • AMAZON.NextIntent

You can choose to implement these intents in your custom skill without providing any sample utterances.

As the skill developer, you must ensure these intents are handled in your skill’s service (AWS Lambda or web service) in order for the user to use them.
