            Alexa-Skills-kit: How do a get the in-skill-products a user is entitled to outside of an alexa session
            Asked 2021-May-25 at 07:40

            I have an Alexa-Skill and am building a Web-App for this skill. In the skill users can buy a subscription for an ISP and in the Web-App I need to know if a user is subscribed (is entitled) to that ISP. How can I do that and is it even possible?

            More information
            • My skill's code (written in python using the Alexa-Skills-Kit SDK) is hosted as an AWS Lambda function.
            • The Skill's database as an AWS DynamoDB. The Web-App I'm developing has access to that DynamoDB.
            My idea What I tried so far

            First I tried invoking my skill's lambda function through the ask-sdk with a request for my skill's "getEntitledProducts" Intent. This intent stores the entitled products in the response's sessionAttributes. The request I got from the alexa developer console test tab where I (successfully) invoked the mentioned intent. Here in the developer console it works without problem

            One possible but not the best approach can be the database solution that you suggested but with some additional data. When the user subscribes for the first time you can always save the subscription datetime in the DB and you know for how long the subscription is valid. Then you just have to play with datetime library to know wether the user is subscribed or not.

            This will not be helpful if your skill is already running and is live, but if not then this can help.



            Alexa fetching user email using python
            Asked 2021-Mar-31 at 09:04

            I am trying to make an Alexa skill using python backend. I am using amazon developer console to create model and code backend.

            I want to retrieve user email address. I would appreciate if you could provide me with sample code. I tried many methods but none were working.

            here are some codes I tried :

            I know this is device address but this was also not working, and I thought if i could get address I can get email.

            Everything mentioned online is for Node, and I want to make my backend on python

            As specified in the official documentation you need to make an API call to the ASK.

            For email you need to call your api_endpoint followed by /v2/accounts/~current/settings/

            For me endpoint is : therefore the complete url becomes :

            As far as adding the token to authorize the request it can be done by using the requests library by passing header to the get request. You can learn more about that from here

            The final code should then look something like this :
