Installing the Alexa Channel component

Updated on February 10, 2023

To provide users with the Alexa channel to communicate with your application by voice commands through Amazon Alexa, add the AlexaChannel component to your Pega Platform application.

Before you begin: If the AlexaChannel component is not part of your Pega Platform application, obtain a .zip file for that component from Pega Marketplace. For more information, see Amazon Alexa Channel.
  1. Switch to Dev Studio.
  2. In Dev Studio, click the name of your application, and then click Definition.
  3. In the Enabled components section, click Manage components.
  4. If the AlexaChannel component does not appear in the list in the Available components section, install the .zip file on Pega Platform by clicking Install new.
    The AlexaChannel component is not available in your application by default.
  5. In the Status column, select the Enabled checkbox for the AlexaChannel component.
  6. Click OK, and then click Save.
  7. Switch back to App Studio.
What to do next: In the Amazon developer portal, create an Alexa skill definition. For more information, see Creating an Alexa skill definition.
