Alexa deleteShouldEndSession not honored in ask responses



The function $alexaSkill.deleteShouldEndSession() does not remove the shouldEndSession parameter when issuing an ask response. We are working with Amazon on an issue and the recommended fix is to set the shouldEndSession parameter to null or remove it completely.

The deleteShouldEndSesion() call is only working when issuing a tell response, but that prevents sessionAttributes from being recorded, which are required for proper functioning of our product.


Nice catch!

Preparing the patch and publish the changes tomorrow or on Friday.
