Background: Alexa Skill was just certified and released by Amazon today, available for use by the public The skill uses an AWS Lambda back end with a "prod" alias on the ARN. Development is done with the $LATEST version so as to not interfere with the live skill.
The next release of the skill needs upgrades to both the interaction model and the AWS Lambda function.
What is the recommended method for submitting the new version of the skill for certification, while not breaking the live version of the skill?
If the "prod" alias is moved to the latest AWS Lambda function version, then the live skill will suddenly break because it does not have the latest interaction model.
Is it recommended to create a new AWS Lambda function version alias for each release submitted for certification? E.g., prod-002?
