Amazon Lex now supports Alphanumeric slot type allowing you to easily define slots such as flight confirmation code that contain combination of letters and numbers. Up until now, you had to create a custom slot type with a large range of sample values. By using the Alphanumeric slot type you can quickly set up a slot to capture alphanumeric information. Further, you can extend this slot type to restrict the user input to a fixed format by specifying a regular expression. 

Alphanumeric built-in slot type is now available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), EU West (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Sydney) AWS Regions. For more information please refer to the Amazon Lex documentation
