NLU Connector


The Alexa Endpoint uses the Alexa NLU Connector. See the NLU Connectors Page for more details.



When using Amazon Alexa with Cognigy, all NLU is done by Amazon. it is NOT possible to use Cognigy NLU.

Amazon only passes the intent name to the flow, not the actual user input! Therefore, any nodes that use conditions based on user input (e.g. if-nodes and rule intents are capable of doing so) will not work as intended.
