id

id: string

Gets the unique conversation ID. It's a new ID for the initial query, and stays the same until the end of the conversation.

example

app.intent('actions.intent.MAIN', conv => {
  const conversationId = conv.id
})

input

input: Input

noInputs

noInputs: (string | SimpleResponse)[] = []

Set reprompts when users don't provide input to this action (no-input errors). Each reprompt represents as the SimpleResponse, but raw strings also can be specified for convenience (they're passed to the constructor of SimpleResponse). Notice that this value is not kept over conversations. Thus, it is necessary to set the reprompts per each conversation response.

example

app.intent('actions.intent.MAIN', conv => {
  conv.noInputs = [
    'Are you still there?',
    'Hello?',
    new SimpleResponse({
      text: 'Talk to you later. Bye!',
      speech: '<speak>Talk to you later. Bye!</speak>'
    })
  ]
  conv.ask('What's your favorite color?')
})

    const app = actionssdk()
    
    app.intent('actions.intent.MAIN', conv => {
      const ssml = '<speak>Hi! <break time="1"/> ' +
        'I can read out an ordinal like <say-as interpret-as="ordinal">123</say-as>. ' +
        'Say a number.</speak>'
      conv.ask(ssml)
    })
    
    app.intent('actions.intent.TEXT', (conv, input) => {
      if (input === 'bye') {
        return conv.close('Goodbye!')
      }
      const ssml = `<speak>You said, <say-as interpret-as="ordinal">${input}</say-as></speak>`
      conv.ask(ssml)
    })
    
    // Dialogflow
    const app = dialogflow()
    
    app.intent('Default Welcome Intent', conv => {
      conv.ask('Welcome to action snippets! Say a number.')
    })
    
    app.intent('Number Input', (conv, {num}) => {
      conv.close(`You said ${num}`)
    })
