Get Started With Skill Testing Operations
With these skill testing features in the Skill Management API (SMAPI), you can test your skill programmatically rather than using the Alexa Skills Kit developer console. You can test skill invocation and simulate skill execution using these REST APIs:
- Use the Utterance Profiler API to test user utterances and improve your skill's interaction model.
- Use the Skill Invocation API to invoke your skill for testing purposes.
- Use the Skill Simulation API to simulate skill execution for testing purposes.
- Use the Skill Validation API to validate your skill before submitting it for certification, or at any time during development as regression testing.
You must use the Skill Invocation API and the Skill Simulation API for testing purposes only.
The API's endpoint is https://api.amazonalexa.com. Each API request must have an
Authorization header whose value is the access token retrieved from Login with Amazon.
You can use the Alexa Skills Kit Command Line Interface (ASK CLI) to interact with any of these APIs.
