Need interface page to work between Coldfusion server and Alexa 'Skill.' Will use this interface as a template for future skills development. This page is a behind the scenes page that simply allows the Echo to connect and validate. I will then build the conversation 'intents' from that.
To be clear, this is a page that will live on the CF server. NOT looking for Lamda functions, we are using our own CF server.
As per Amazon developer info: Alternatively, you can write a web service and host it with any cloud hosting provider. The web service must accept requests over HTTPS. In this case, Alexa sends requests to your web service and your service takes any necessary actions and sends back a response. You can write your web service in any language.
This is a fairly simple request, and there may be code out there already, but haven't found it.
I have a developer account with Amazon.
We may need additional interfaces in the future unrelated skills.
If you have built pages that communicate via JSON (like a paypal interface, etc) this should be a relatively easy creation. Thank you.
ADDENDUM - To be clear, this should be a single web page that acts as a negotiation page between the server and the Alexa request. Alexa reaches out to the server and exchanges a key, the key is given. Once this happens, then the additional functions respond based on the requests of the user ("intents"). If this work goes smoothly, then I would look to the developer for future help in building another skill.
