"Skill I/O is available only for speech requests to skills you have created"

I’ve come across an issue in Service Simulator II in Build Your First Alexa Skill.

The test UI in the Alexa Developer Console won’t give me JSON (or anything at all) in the Skill I/O window. It is just grayed out with the text “Skill I/O is available only for speech requests to skills you have created” over it, even after entering “tell code academy hello” as the lesson requires.

Has any one else here had this issue? It seems like it’s been an unresolved issue for some time on the Amazon Developer Forums

Thanks!

Anyone else having this issue? It’s been months without any improvement from Amazon or any word from Codecademy staff. This issue makes it so I can’t complete the Introduction to Alexa course.

I’ve reached out to Amazon Developer support and will update here if I get anything useful from them.

I am facing the same issue and couldn’t resolve. I am with you @bearsoup
