Fallback implementation in new version

Hi , I am using new version 0.11.3, I am trying to enable fallback policy through rasa core train command. The below is my command

python -m rasa_core.train -s stories.md -d domain.yml -o models/dialogue --history 1 --nlu_threshold 0.1 --core_threshold 0.1 --fallback_action action_default_fallback --epochs 300

I have mentioned the utter_default template in domain.yml file and in stories defined like this

    ## fallback
- action_default_fallback

when checking with some random words i am getting the below error. Please help me to resolve

Please take a look at the docs and set an endpoint configuration. https://rasa.com/docs/core/customactions/`

Please correct me if i am missing any steps?

Someone please help me on this issue

The fall back action is default action,suppose if you want use it in your bot. This will be treated as custom action, so copy the fall back implementation and create the actions.py. On the next step run this below command

python -m rasa_core_sdk.endpoint --actions actions

to treat your custom action as endpoint. Mention the endpoint.yml file in the rasa core run command.

you don’t need to copy the fallback action, just don’t list it in your domain, and then it should run fine with the command you specified

Thanks @akelad it worked.

@akelad i will add this step in the docs and share the PR

hmm i’m pretty sure this is already in the docs?

Hi, can I know from which version of rasa_core the fallback policy is applicable. I am currently using rasa_core of 0.9.0a2 version. when i tried to include the fallback policy, while I am trying to train rasa_core model it is running fine but when I am running the bot on cmdline it is throwing the following error : “TypeError: load() takes 2 positional arguments but 4 were given”. Please help me to resolve this issue. Thank you in advance.
