start-entities-detection-job

Description

Starts an asynchronous entity detection job for a collection of documents. Use the operation to track the status of a job.

This API can be used for either standard entity detection or custom entity recognition. In order to be used for custom entity recognition, the optional EntityRecognizerArn must be used in order to provide access to the recognizer being used to detect the custom entity.

Options

--input-data-config (structure)

Specifies the format and location of the input data for the job.

S3Uri -> (string)

The Amazon S3 URI for the input data. The URI must be in same region as the API endpoint that you are calling. The URI can point to a single input file or it can provide the prefix for a collection of data files.

For example, if you use the URI S3://bucketName/prefix , if the prefix is a single file, Amazon Comprehend uses that file as input. If more than one file begins with the prefix, Amazon Comprehend uses all of them as input.

InputFormat -> (string)

Specifies how the text in an input file should be processed:

  • ONE_DOC_PER_FILE - Each file is considered a separate document. Use this option when you are processing large documents, such as newspaper articles or scientific papers.
  • ONE_DOC_PER_LINE - Each line in a file is considered a separate document. Use this option when you are processing many short documents, such as text messages.

DocumentReaderConfig -> (structure)

The document reader config field applies only for InputDataConfig of StartEntitiesDetectionJob.

Use DocumentReaderConfig to provide specifications about how you want your inference documents read. Currently it applies for PDF documents in StartEntitiesDetectionJob custom inference.

DocumentReadAction -> (string)

This enum field will start with two values which will apply to PDFs:

  • TEXTRACT_DETECT_DOCUMENT_TEXT - The service calls DetectDocumentText for PDF documents per page.
  • TEXTRACT_ANALYZE_DOCUMENT - The service calls AnalyzeDocument for PDF documents per page.

DocumentReadMode -> (string)

This enum field provides two values:

  • SERVICE_DEFAULT - use service defaults for Document reading. For Digital PDF it would mean using an internal parser instead of Textract APIs
  • FORCE_DOCUMENT_READ_ACTION - Always use specified action for DocumentReadAction, including Digital PDF.

FeatureTypes -> (list)

Specifies how the text in an input file should be processed:

(string)

A list of the types of analyses to perform. This field specifies what feature types need to be extracted from the document where entity recognition is expected.

  • TABLES - Add TABLES to the list to return information about the tables that are detected in the input document.
  • FORMS - Add FORMS to return detected form data.

Shorthand Syntax:

S3Uri=string,InputFormat=string,DocumentReaderConfig={DocumentReadAction=string,DocumentReadMode=string,FeatureTypes=[string,string]}

JSON Syntax:

{
  "S3Uri": "string",
  "InputFormat": "ONE_DOC_PER_FILE"|"ONE_DOC_PER_LINE",
  "DocumentReaderConfig": {
    "DocumentReadAction": "TEXTRACT_DETECT_DOCUMENT_TEXT"|"TEXTRACT_ANALYZE_DOCUMENT",
    "DocumentReadMode": "SERVICE_DEFAULT"|"FORCE_DOCUMENT_READ_ACTION",
    "FeatureTypes": ["TABLES"|"FORMS", ...]
  }
}

--output-data-config (structure)

Specifies where to send the output files.

S3Uri -> (string)

When you use the OutputDataConfig object with asynchronous operations, you specify the Amazon S3 location where you want to write the output data. The URI must be in the same region as the API endpoint that you are calling. The location is used as the prefix for the actual location of the output file.

When the topic detection job is finished, the service creates an output file in a directory specific to the job. The S3Uri field contains the location of the output file, called output.tar.gz . It is a compressed archive that contains the ouput of the operation.

KmsKeyId -> (string)

ID for the AWS Key Management Service (KMS) key that Amazon Comprehend uses to encrypt the output results from an analysis job. The KmsKeyId can be one of the following formats:

  • KMS Key ID: "1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab"
  • Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of a KMS Key: "arn:aws:kms:us-west-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab"
  • KMS Key Alias: "alias/ExampleAlias"
  • ARN of a KMS Key Alias: "arn:aws:kms:us-west-2:111122223333:alias/ExampleAlias"

JSON Syntax:

{
  "S3Uri": "string",
  "KmsKeyId": "string"
}

--data-access-role-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that grants Amazon Comprehend read access to your input data. For more information, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/comprehend/latest/dg/access-control-managing-permissions.html#auth-role-permissions .

--job-name (string)

The identifier of the job.

--entity-recognizer-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that identifies the specific entity recognizer to be used by the StartEntitiesDetectionJob . This ARN is optional and is only used for a custom entity recognition job.

--language-code (string)

The language of the input documents. All documents must be in the same language. You can specify any of the languages supported by Amazon Comprehend. If custom entities recognition is used, this parameter is ignored and the language used for training the model is used instead.

  • en
  • es
  • fr
  • de
  • it
  • pt
  • ar
  • hi
  • ja
  • ko

--client-request-token (string)

A unique identifier for the request. If you don't set the client request token, Amazon Comprehend generates one.

--volume-kms-key-id (string)

ID for the AWS Key Management Service (KMS) key that Amazon Comprehend uses to encrypt data on the storage volume attached to the ML compute instance(s) that process the analysis job. The VolumeKmsKeyId can be either of the following formats:

  • KMS Key ID: "1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab"

--tags (list)

Tags to be associated with the entities detection job. A tag is a key-value pair that adds metadata to a resource used by Amazon Comprehend. For example, a tag with "Sales" as the key might be added to a resource to indicate its use by the sales department.

(structure)

A key-value pair that adds as a metadata to a resource used by Amazon Comprehend. For example, a tag with the key-value pair ‘Department’:’Sales’ might be added to a resource to indicate its use by a particular department.

Key -> (string)

The initial part of a key-value pair that forms a tag associated with a given resource. For instance, if you want to show which resources are used by which departments, you might use “Department” as the key portion of the pair, with multiple possible values such as “sales,” “legal,” and “administration.”

Value -> (string)

The second part of a key-value pair that forms a tag associated with a given resource. For instance, if you want to show which resources are used by which departments, you might use “Department” as the initial (key) portion of the pair, with a value of “sales” to indicate the sales department.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string"

--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. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
