General Information

  • Skill Description - This description is the same as the description entered in the Skill Manifest.
  • Language - This lists the available languages for the skill, which are defined in the Skill Manifest.
  • Delete Skill - For organizations writing their own skills, this allows you the ability to delete a skill if you have the 'Delete Skill Packages' permission and your organization owns the skill. If either criteria is not met, this button will not appear. After selecting Delete Skill, a window will appear asking to confirm the deletion.

Did You Know

You have the ability to prioritize your Audiences from highest priority to lowest by clicking on the priority_icon.png icon and dragging it to where you would like it to show in the list. You can also click on the priority_icon.png icon and use the up and down arrows on your keyboard to move the priority. By default, the Development audience will be listed first. Note: The Everyone audience is unable to be moved to a different priority.

Storage

The Storage section is where you can upload, delete, or download files that are used for semi-static skills. File data must be UTF-8 encoded. There is a file size limit of 100 MB.

  • The Files table will always be available regardless of if needed for the skill.
    • Uploaded files will default to alphabetically sort by name. When uploading files, you have the ability to upload any file type, however we recommend using CSV or JSON files to utilize the built-in Andi® capabilities. Note: File names are treated as strings
    • The Files table will paginate when more than 20 files have been uploaded. Each subsequent page will contain a maximum of 20 files. Any file uploaded after the 20th file will add to the end of the current page you are on. You will need to refresh the skill page in order for the pagination to take effect.
  • The Data Sets table will only appear if defined in the skill code.

 

Skill History Tab

The History tab shows the history of skill events such as skill versions being deployed, enabled and disabled in an audience, and deleted. By default, you will see skill history up to a week ago from the current date. If you want to filter by a different date range, click into the Start Date and End Date fields to change the dates.

In the Action drop down, you can choose how you want to filter the skill history by selecting an option from the list. For example, if you only want the history to show when the skills configurations were updated, select 'Update Skill Config'.

Using the Audience drop down, you can filter the skill history based on the audience (development, everyone, testing).  

Note: When adjusting filters, be sure to select the Search button to refresh the results.

Click the drop down to select the skill version you would like to see errors for. Note: When adjusting filters, be sure to select the Search button to refresh the results.

On each error in the list, you will see a short message that describes the error. Click on the error to view additional information about it. You'll also see the Source of the error, the skill Version in which the error occurred, and the Date and time the error occurred.
