Do I need to specify entities in domain.yml


I was using a training dataset (nlu.yml) where I specified some entities in the examples. After training and running rasa shell nlu, everything want smoothly and entities were extracted properly. However I realized afterwards that In didn’t define any entities list in my domain.yml. So I’m wondering if specifying entities in domain.yml does really matter. Any idea?

Thanks in advance, Ch.

You don’t have to do it (since it works). But when you start your bot in Rasa X, it will automatically add the entities to the domain.

Thanks @ChrisRahme for the clarification :slight_smile:
