Can't slot be filled with random (but defined) entities?


I’m making a chatbot with rasa folllowing the structure I used in DialogFlow. In it you could set an option for entities to be “automatically expanded”, meaning you didn’t have to create all the entries for an entity the user would write, it would detect it on the phrase with having to write it before.

Well I can’t do the same in Rasa, and I don’t know if it’s because I don’t know how, or because the option isn’t available.

Is it possible? And if so, how do I do it?

You don’t need to define all possible entities. If you provide enough of them and there is a specific pattern that was detected, Rasa will recognize similar entities.

But if your entity values vary a lot, like names or places, it would be better to use Lookup Tables like this one.

Ok, thank you! I will try this
