Set the slot value using regular expression

I want to set my slot value using regular expression. any one please help me on that.

My slot was movie name, can’t train all movie names so i used regular expression pattern.

here my regular expression nlu data:

- regex: moviename
  examples: |
    - (.*)
- intent: movies
  examples: |
    - [dabangg](moviename)
    - [sholay](moviename)
    - [pink](moviename)
    - [stalin](moviename)
    - [racha](moviename)

here is my slot in domain.yml:

- movies:
    use_entities: []
- moviename
    type: text
    influence_conversation: false
    type: text
    influence_conversation: false

here is my

class ActionMovieName(Action):
    def name(self):
        return "action_movie_name"
    def run(self, dispatcher, tracker, domain):
        movie = tracker.latest_message['text']
        return [SlotSet("movie", movie)]

Here is my story path:

- story: happy path
  - intent: greet
  - action: action_ask_movie_name
  - slot_was_set:
    - requested_slot: movie
  - intent: movies
  - action: action_movie_name

Hello @mounika2

I’d use a form for this, where the movie name is picked up first by entity and second by text:

      - type: from_entity
        entity: movie_name
        intent: provide_movie_name
      - type: from_text  # see

Then give a few examples for some provide_movie_name intent, such as

- i watched [The Dark Knight](movie_name)
- [Contact](movie_name) perhaps?

where the movie title can be inferred from the surrounding words. If the user gives only the title (no surrounding words), then the from_text slot mapping should kick in. You can also use not_intent to handle cases where the user doesn’t provide a movie name.

Hey, @j.mosig

Thanks for your information.

Hi, @j.mosig,

please help me on stories and rules, I f write story path using forms I am getting error like this

InvalidRule: Contradicting rules or stories found :rotating_light:

  • the prediction of the action ‘action_movie_db’ in story ‘happy path’ is contradicting with rule(s) ‘’ which predicted action ‘action_listen’.
    Please update your stories and rules so that they don’t contradict each other.

From any given dialogue state (what has been said so far), only one particular action can follow. The InvalidRule message appears when you have a story that says one thing, and a rule that says another, so Rasa cannot learn what to do. To give you more help, please post your rules and your story named “happy path”.

@alludaddy Welcome to the forum! Your question seems to be unrelated to the current thread. Can you please post it in a separate thread?
