Episode Intents

Introduction

An episode for TV, radio, video game, or other media which can be part of a series or season. These intents let users request actions related to episodes, such as starting playback of a particular episode or searching for a particular episode.

This document provides a quick reference to the Episode intents and corresponding slots. For details around how these intents are specified, see Understanding the Structure of the Built-in Intent Library.

Intent Signature

Use the intent signature as the intent name in your intent schema. This example shows a schema with two Episode intents:

{
    "intents": [
        {
            "intent": "AMAZON.ExitAction<object@Episode>"
        }, 
        {
            "intent": "AMAZON.WatchAction<object@Episode>"
        }
    ]
}

For more about the components of this signature, see Understanding the Structure of the Built-in Intent Library.

Episode Intents

The following table summarizes the available Episode intents and the set of slots that may be included. For each intent, the sections below the table show:

  • A sample utterance that would invoke the intent.
  • The JSON you include in your intent schema if you want to use the intent.
  • An example of the IntentRequest sent to your skill for the provided sample utterance, illustrating the slots that may be included. For brevity, these samples leave out the full set of properties that are normally part of a complete IntentRequest.

    Note that if your interaction model includes multiple intents with similar utterances, your results may vary from these examples.

For definitions of the slots used in these intents, see Episode Slots.

Episode Slots

The Episode intents can return slot values to your skill. You do not include these slots in your intent schema – they are generated automatically from the intent signature.

Note that not all available slots are returned from every intent. See the table in Episode Intents to see which slots are applicable to each intent.

The following table shows the slots the Episode intents can return. For each slot, the table includes:

  • The slot name.
  • An example utterance for the slot.
  • The JSON that would be sent to your skill for the sample utterance.
  • If applicable, the name of the slot type used by the slot. You can see details about slot types in the Slot Type Reference.
