Microsoft Azure Form Recognizer


Azure Form Recognizer is a cognitive service that uses machine learning technology to identify and extract key-value pairs and table data from form documents. It then outputs structured data that includes the relationships in the original file.

The Azure Form Recognizer activities give you the ability to automate interactions with the Azure Form Recognizer service. Using the Form Recognizer API, this activities package enables your robots to analyze forms, receipts, and get, create, and delete custom models.

If you're ready to start using the Azure Form Recognizer activities, see the Get Started section below. To learn more about the package, keep reading to see How it works and the Technical References.

How it works

To enable the outbound automation between UiPath and Azure Form Recognizer, the activities establish an authenticated connection to the Form Recognizer API via the Azure Form Recognizer Scope activity.

After the connection is established, the other Azure Form Recognizer activities send requests to the applicable Form Recognizer API operation(s) using the parameters you enter in the activities' input properties. If the requests are successful, the activities return the response values to the output property variables.

How does it connect?

This is where we need your help.

Before the scope activity can be used to establish a connection, you must complete the steps outlined in the Setup guide. After you complete the Setup steps, you can begin building your automation projects



The authentication method used by the Azure Form Recognizer Scope activity is different when compared to other Microsoft integrations (e.g., Teams and Office 365).

Currently, the Azure Form Recognizer activities authenticate with a single-service subscription key only. Authentication using an InteractiveToken or IntegratedWindowsAuthentication is not supported.

Technical References

The Technical References page includes a complete list of and the links to the Form Recognizer API operations used by each activity.

You don't need to be familiar with the Form Recognizer APIs to use the activities. The Technical References are for informational purposes only.
