Thank you so much for a very helpful reply. I had not done the security profile as you suggested. I have however fixed that now (I think). It still looks like there is one or two small details that are not correct since I'm not getting the "green" checks on the "Configuration" tabs on the top left.
Is there any more help you can give me? I really appreciate your quick and detailed reply
Dont worry about the green check. I dont have it but it works anyway. Check if your alexa can discover your devices.
And you dont have to do the last two either.
Thanks again for the positive and superfast reply, R1kkie
I'm at the office now, but I'll check my Alexa as soon as I get home.
One very good sign tough is that I can find the skill in my "Amazon Alexa" app on my iPhone. It says however that "Account linking required". It has a yellow "Enable Skill" button when I go into the skill in my app, but it fails when i try to do this. It comes back with a page saying "Unable to link your Skill. Please try again later".
Do you think it's a step I have missed?
Does it not have to be "enabled" from the app?
Will this get resolved by "discovering" the devices?
Hi, please see the updates on the github page, the most common error is that the redirect urls for the security profile is not added. From github:
"Create an Alexa skill and Lambda Function by following these instructions (with the modifications noted below). Note1: don't forget about the steps to create a secuirty profile, and also make sure to add the "Redirect URLs" from the Alexa skill configuration to the "Web Settings->Allowed Return URLs" for the security profile. Also, enter the values from the secuirty profile to the configuration of the Alexa skill (some of the more common problems users have..) Note2: Since Alexa now is released in more countries, make sure where your lambda is hosted. From Amazon: "Make sure you’ve selected the N.Virginia for English (US) skills or the EU (Ireland) region for English (UK) and German skills. The region is displayed in the upper right corner. Providing your Lambda function in the correct region prevents latency issues" (This can change in the future, so please verify it with the amazon documentation.)"
Also, since we are all doing our "own" telldus skill, there is no need to publish it, since it's unique for each of us.
