The launch command sends a launch request to your service as if it was coming from alexa itself.

To start using it, you will need to support the "LaunchRequest" event on your handler for the received Intents in your service.


To invoke the launch command, simply type:

$ bst launch

The launch command will return the full request and response of the interaction with your Skill service.

By default, the system will use the service currently running via the bst proxy command

Working without using the proxy

If no service is currently running via bst proxy, an HTTP endpoint can be specified with the --url option:

$ bst launch --url https://my.skill.com/skill/path
