I’ve written two How-Tos which describe how to use the Watson Conversation tools Ansgar Schmidt and I had open sourced.
The new page on developer.ibm.com contains How-Tos that describe everything that might be of interest to developers using the IBM Cloud. In contrast to patterns, How-Tos are typically shorter and sometimes contain ‘only’ documentation and no source code.
Inspecting Watson Conversations REST Requests
This how-to explains how to set up and use the community tool, Conversation Inspector for IBM Watson, to display and manipulate the JSON that is sent between applications and Watson Conversation services. This is useful when you use context variables extensively to manage state information.
