[ aws . lexv2-models ]



Creates a locale in the bot. The locale contains the intents and slot types that the bot uses in conversations with users in the specified language and locale. You must add a locale to a bot before you can add intents and slot types to the bot.

--bot-id (string)

The identifier of the bot to create the locale for.

--bot-version (string)

The version of the bot to create the locale for. This can only be the draft version of the bot.

--locale-id (string)

The identifier of the language and locale that the bot will be used in. The string must match one of the supported locales. All of the intents, slot types, and slots used in the bot must have the same locale. For more information, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/lex/latest/dg/supported-locales.html .

--description (string)

A description of the bot locale. Use this to help identify the bot locale in lists.

--nlu-intent-confidence-threshold (double)

Determines the threshold where Amazon Lex will insert the AMAZON.FallbackIntent , AMAZON.KendraSearchIntent , or both when returning alternative intents. AMAZON.FallbackIntent and AMAZON.KendraSearchIntent are only inserted if they are configured for the bot.

For example, suppose a bot is configured with the confidence threshold of 0.80 and the AMAZON.FallbackIntent . Amazon Lex returns three alternative intents with the following confidence scores: IntentA (0.70), IntentB (0.60), IntentC (0.50). The response from the PostText operation would be:

  • AMAZON.FallbackIntent

  • IntentA

  • IntentB

  • IntentC

--voice-settings (structure)

The Amazon Polly voice ID that Amazon Lex uses for voice interaction with the user.

voiceId -> (string)

The identifier of the Amazon Polly voice to use.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "voiceId": "string"

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


botId -> (string)

The specified bot identifier.

botVersion -> (string)

The specified bot version.

localeName -> (string)

The specified locale name.

localeId -> (string)

The specified locale identifier.

description -> (string)

voiceId -> (string)

botLocaleStatus -> (string)

The status of the bot.

When the status is Creating the bot locale is being configured. When the status is Building Amazon Lex is building the bot for testing and use.

If the status of the bot is ReadyExpressTesting , you can test the bot using the exact utterances specified in the bots’ intents. When the bot is ready for full testing or to run, the status is Built .

If there was a problem with building the bot, the status is Failed . If the bot was saved but not built, the status is NotBuilt .

creationDateTime -> (timestamp)

A timestamp specifying the date and time that the bot locale was created.
