Amazon Lex

The Amazon Lex Endpoint allows you to connect your Amazon Lex bots with Cognigy.AI.

This is achieved by using a Lambda function with your Lex bots.

These Amazon Lex bots can be integrated into contact Flows within Amazon Connect. This way customers can call your Virtual Contact Center and speak with a Cognigy.AI bot.

The option to reparse slots is only available if the Amazon Lex (Built-in) NLU is selected.
