Account linking token without skill restart


#1

Hi Community,
the provided account linking tutorials force the skill to restart to get an access token. I would like to keep the session open and add an yes/no interaction to ask the user if linking was successfully. I see that the accessed property context.System.user.accessToken is not set before restarting the skill. Does anybody know if there is an alternative way to request the token?
Greetings

Hey @Andre

I haven’t had this use case yet, but I don’t think it works. I assume the user object is created with every new session.

Here’s an idea. Listen to the AccountLinked skill event and save it (temporarily) in the user’s DB. You should be able to access it from the “old/active” session.
