The handler interface for searching for bills associated with the user.


@protocol INSearchForBillsIntentHandling


Use the methods of the INSearchForBillsIntentHandling protocol to resolve, confirm, and handle requests to search for bills related to the user. Adopt this protocol in an object of your Intents extension that is capable of searching the user’s bills and returning those bills that match the specified criteria. Users can search for bills based on the payee, the bill type, the due date, and whether the user has paid them or not.

Siri delivers an INSearchForBillsIntent object to your handler when the user asks to search for bills using your app. The provided intent object contains the parameters to use during the search. Use the methods of this protocol to resolve the parameters and perform the search.
