The alexaEvent Object

class AlexaEvent(event, lambdaContext)

The alexaEvent object contains all the information from the Alexa event, it’s an object kept for the entire lifecycle of the state machine transitions and as such is a perfect place for middleware to put information that should be available on every request.


The default middleware instantiates a Model and makes it available through alexaEvent.model


The alexaEvent object makes intent.slots available through intent.params after aplying a simple transformation so { slots: [{ name: 'Dish', value: 'Fried Chicken' }] } becomes { Dish: 'Fried Chicken' }
