How do I enable Room Skill Parameters?

0

Hi,

I am trying to set the room skill parameters in Alexa for Hospitality and Alexa for Business. By all accounts, it should be pretty straightforward: click on the edit icon next to the skill on the room's page. The main problem is that on my consoles, there is no edit icon. Do I need to set something in my private skill to add room skill parameters? I looked through the Alexa Skill Kit console, and I saw that scope is defined when account linking is enabled. I did not see anything similar for room skill parameters, which is supposed to be available for private skills without account linking. Am I missing it somewhere?

Thanks,
Philip

In that case, the automatic whitelist to the resolveRoom API doesn't work.
Can you send me a private message with your skill ID and AWS account id from where you call the resolveRoom A4B API?

Hey Philip,

Can you be more specific about the steps you are following? I'm happy to help debug the issue. Thanks!

The room skill parameters are also available for skills without account linking.
Since we moved to the redesigned console, the option is a bit hidden. I will share this feedback with product team.

To find the settings:

  1. Go to the room details page
  2. Scroll down to table with your skills
  3. Next to the private skill, you see an edit icon. When you click this icon, the parameter field will expand.

You can also use the AWS SDK/CLI to set the parameter https://docs.aws.amazon.com/a4b/latest/APIReference/API_PutRoomSkillParameter.html

Hmm, weird.
Are these private skills?
Also, are you using a Lambda function as skill endpoint?

It is a private skill, but it is a custom skill hosted on my own server. Does it need to be a lambda function to support room skill parameters? If not, do I need to implement something specific in my custom skill?

Thanks,
