When does SessionEndedRequest get invoked on the Alexa Skills Kit?

The SessionEndedRequest is important to get right, especially when you want to save the current session to DynamoDB (in essence, persist the state across different sessions). However, like the LaunchRequest, you won’t define this in your intent schema. So when does it get invoked?
