TL;DR: How do you set a Slot from Python when using the Actions SDK server?
Longer version with context:
I have been following the
Rasa documentation to build my bot, but there is one section that I’m finding unclear.
In Events the ´Note´ at the start of the page says that if you are running a Custom Action on the SDK you have to use rasa_sdk.events instead of the events from Core. But the two don’t seem interchangable and there is no further information on this. The Event from Core is an instance of a class, and the Event from the SKD is a Dict[Text, Any].
Ultimately, what I’m trying to do is to set a slot from Python, e.g. ‘username’, whilst running all of my actions from an Actions Server. I’m testing this by running:
- One script that starts the
- Another script sets slot ‘username’ the value ‘Alex’ and then calls a
- If it worked well, the Actions Server should return: ‘Hello Alex’ instead of the default username value (in this case ‘friend’).
Thank you in advance a lot! I hope you can help!
