  2. In Dev Studio, click the name of your application, and then click Definition.
  3. In the Enabled components section, click Manage components.
  4. If the AlexaChannel component does not appear in the list in the Available components section, install the .zip file on Pega Platform by clicking Install new.
    The AlexaChannel component is not available in your application by default.
  5. In the Status column, select the Enabled check box for the AlexaChannel component.
  6. Click OK, and then click Save.
