An intent is a specific reason that a visitor is visiting. For example "buying shoes" or "sign up for service." Visitors indicate their intent by performing actions that trigger one or more signals or enrichments that tell you why they're here. Defining such an intent within Context lets you target visitors with intent-specific content.
Information about the visitor and the visitor's actions contribute to a score. For example, if the visitor has triggered a certain signal, that might add 10 to the a specific intent score. Personalization might be applied as long as the visitor's score for this intent doesn't exceed 25.
For background information about what intents are and examples of how they're used, see the classification overview.

About this step
If the deleted intent was used to personalize any composition, when you open the composition you will see an "invalid" message. When
you select the component with the personalization you will see an error message about "criteria dimension doesn't exist."
You must either select another dimension or delete the personalization criteria before you are able to save any changes to the composition.
