Alexa 'Smart Home' Skill Configuration

I have read the docs for the Alexa skill event definition ( and and my issue is that there is no mention of 2 things that I need to do in the YAML definition:

  1. How to setup a ‘Smart Home’ skill as the trigger of a Lambda function
  2. How to provide the Application ID (of the Alexa skill definition) to the Lambda function definition

Any help is truly appreciated!
