Skill not updating on/in ADC

i have made changes to a skill that included removing a large portion of speak text. then i hit upload to alexa, it confirms it made it, and then i go to test it and it still speaks the text i removed.

i have cleared cache, rebooted and uploaded to alexa at least 10x as this is a time sensitive launch and deadline i am working under and no matter what i do in the ADC testing it says the text i removed YET in the prototype area in VF the text i removed is gone!

please help as this is just nuts.

I’m not sure but if you have live version, means you’ve already published once, you have 2 versions: live and development. voiceflow uploads to dev version. in that case, you can toggle dev or live in test simulator.

i am testing dev. version and it is not updating to what is in voiceflow.

it is driving me nuts. it is not updating no matter what i do. i hit the update on alexa button or whatever it goes for a few seconds and then says it is updated BUT in Dev Test Mode in the ADC for the Dev version of the skill it is speaking text that has been removed in VF. Testing it in prototype in VF it is correct, trying to update it to the dev. ver of the skill in ADC it keep saying the deleted text.

I’m having the same issue. None of my changes are transferring over to the console.

Edit* Just to be clear. I’m hitting the upload to alexa button and then in the aws alexa console I’m rebuilding the model. Clicking build. I’m testing the dev version as well.

Is there something I’m missing?

Hi there, you are most likely testing a previous version of your skill. Be sure to remove any skills with the same invocation on the Alexa Developer Console. Alexa will always run the oldest skill if you are using the same invocations.


Are you saying remove the actual skill from the dev console and then upload to Alexa in VoiceFlow? If we do that will the Account Linking and other settings need to be updated?

I’m running into the same issue with the skill not updating correctly.

I know it’s a year later, but I had this issue occurring. I changed one of the example phrases thinking that might force a complete refresh and also I found when testing in the ADC that I had to turn the test to “OFF” then back to Development. One of those things fixed it. Sorry I didn’t do a better job of isolating which one
