Can an INIntent property be given the value "Ask Each Time"?


Let’s say I’ve defined a custom intent, called FooIntent, in an .intentdefinition file.

It has a single parameter, bar, of type Decimal, for which:
User can supply value in Siri and Shortcuts app is active.
Default Value is 0.

Its autogenerated class definition now looks like this:

public class FooIntent: INIntent {
    @NSManaged public var bar: NSNumber?

If I construct a FooIntent, set bar to nil, and pass it into a INUIAddVoiceShortcutViewController:

let intent = FooIntent() = nil
intent.suggestedInvocationPhrase = "Do foo"

let shortcut = INShortcut(intent: intent)

let viewController = INUIAddVoiceShortcutViewController(shortcut: shortcut!)
viewController.delegate = self
window?.rootViewController?.present(viewController, animated: true, completion: nil)

the Add to Siri modal appears with the bar parameter filled in with 0, its default value.

If, in the Add to Siri UI, I then change bar to Ask Each Time and press Add to Siri, the resulting delegate method call produces an INVoiceShortcut object that contains a nil value for bar:

func addVoiceShortcutViewController(_ controller: INUIAddVoiceShortcutViewController, didFinishWith shortcut: INVoiceShortcut?, error: Error?) {
    if let intent = shortcut?.shortcut.intent as? FooIntent {
        print( // nil
    controller.dismiss(animated: true, completion: nil)

The same is true if I set bar to Clipboard in the UI.

If I set it to a value, e.g. 42, then correctly returns 42.

Since nil seems to represent multiple concepts for a parameter, where is the concept of Ask Each Time stored in the shortcut or intent objects?

Is there anything I can pass into INUIAddVoiceShortcutViewController such that = <Ask Each Time>?
