Handle intent parameters as URL parameters

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- This is a sample actions.xml -->
<actions>
  <action intentName="actions.intent.UPDATE_CART">
    <fulfillment urlTemplate="myapp://custom-deeplink{?name}">
      <!-- Eg. name = "example name" -->
      <!-- (Optional) Require a field eg.name for fulfillment with required="true" -->
      <parameter-mapping urlParameter="name" intentParameter="cart.itemListElement.orderedItem.name" required="true" />
    </fulfillment>

    <!-- Provide a fallback fulfillment with no required parameters. For example, to your app search or router deeplink -->
    <fulfillment urlTemplate="myapp://deeplink" />
  </action>
</actions>

Use web inventory to discover URLs for fulfillment

cart.itemListElement.orderedItem.name is a field that supports web inventory. In the following example, Google Assistant performs a web search for the user query and determines the fulfillment URL. Assistant filters for search results that match the provided urlFilter value of https://www.mywebsite.com/link1/.*.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- This is a sample actions.xml -->
<actions>
  <action intentName="actions.intent.UPDATE_CART">
    <!-- Use URL from entity match for deep link fulfillment -->
    <!-- Example: url = 'https://www.mywebsite.com/link1/item1' -->
    <fulfillment urlTemplate="{@url}" />

    <!-- Provide a fallback fulfillment with no required parameters. For example, to your app search or router deeplink -->
    <fulfillment urlTemplate="myapp://deeplink" />

    <!-- Define parameters with web inventories using urlFilter -->
    <parameter name="cart.itemListElement.orderedItem.name">
      <entity-set-reference urlFilter="https://www.mywebsite.com/link1/.*" />"/>
    </parameter>
  </action>
</actions>
