GlobalIntentEvent

Defines a global intent handler. Global intent events are scoped to the entire Actions project and may be overridden by intent handlers in a scene. Intent names must be unique within an Actions project.

Global intents can be matched anytime during a session, allowing users to access common flows like "get help" or "go back home." They can also be used to deep link users into specific flows when they invoke an Action.

Note, the intent name is specified in the name of the file.
