detect-entities

Description

Inspects text for entities, and returns information about them. For more information, about entities, see how-entities .

See also: AWS API Documentation

Synopsis

  detect-entities
--text <value>
--language-code <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--text (string)

A UTF-8 text string. Each string must contain fewer that 5,000 bytes of UTF-8 encoded characters.

--language-code (string)

The RFC 5646 language code of the input text. If the request does not specify the language code, the service detects the dominant language. If you specify a language code that the service does not support, it returns UnsupportedLanguageException exception. For more information about RFC 5646, see Tags for Identifying Languages on the IETF Tools web site.

Possible values:

  • en
  • es

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Output

Entities -> (list)

A collection of entities identified in the input text. For each entity, the response provides the entity text, entity type, where the entity text begins and ends, and the level of confidence that Amazon Comprehend has in the detection. For a list of entity types, see how-entities .

(structure)

Provides information about an entity.

Score -> (float)

The level of confidence that Amazon Comprehend has in the accuracy of the detection.

Type -> (string)

The entity's type.

Text -> (string)

The text of the entity.

BeginOffset -> (integer)

A character offset in the input text that shows where the entity begins (the first character is at position 0). The offset returns the position of each UTF-8 code point in the string. A code point is the abstract character from a particular graphical representation. For example, a multi-byte UTF-8 character maps to a single code point.

EndOffset -> (integer)

A character offset in the input text that shows where the entity ends. The offset returns the position of each UTF-8 code point in the string. A code point is the abstract character from a particular graphical representation. For example, a multi-byte UTF-8 character maps to a single code point.
