[ aws . textract ]

analyze-expense

Description

Analyzes an input document for financially related relationships between text.

Information is returned as ExpenseDocuments and seperated as follows.

  • LineItemGroups - A data set containing LineItems which store information about the lines of text, such as an item purchased and its price on a receipt.
  • SummaryFields - Contains all other information a receipt, such as header information or the vendors name.

Synopsis

  analyze-expense
--document <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--document (structure)

The input document, either as bytes or as an S3 object.

You pass image bytes to an Amazon Textract API operation by using the Bytes property. For example, you would use the Bytes property to pass a document loaded from a local file system. Image bytes passed by using the Bytes property must be base64 encoded. Your code might not need to encode document file bytes if you're using an AWS SDK to call Amazon Textract API operations.

You pass images stored in an S3 bucket to an Amazon Textract API operation by using the S3Object property. Documents stored in an S3 bucket don't need to be base64 encoded.

The AWS Region for the S3 bucket that contains the S3 object must match the AWS Region that you use for Amazon Textract operations.

If you use the AWS CLI to call Amazon Textract operations, passing image bytes using the Bytes property isn't supported. You must first upload the document to an Amazon S3 bucket, and then call the operation using the S3Object property.

For Amazon Textract to process an S3 object, the user must have permission to access the S3 object.

Bytes -> (blob)

A blob of base64-encoded document bytes. The maximum size of a document that's provided in a blob of bytes is 5 MB. The document bytes must be in PNG or JPEG format.

If you're using an AWS SDK to call Amazon Textract, you might not need to base64-encode image bytes passed using the Bytes field.

S3Object -> (structure)

Identifies an S3 object as the document source. The maximum size of a document that's stored in an S3 bucket is 5 MB.

Bucket -> (string)

The name of the S3 bucket. Note that the # character is not valid in the file name.

Name -> (string)

The file name of the input document. Synchronous operations can use image files that are in JPEG or PNG format. Asynchronous operations also support PDF format files.

Version -> (string)

If the bucket has versioning enabled, you can specify the object version.

Shorthand Syntax:

Bytes=blob,S3Object={Bucket=string,Name=string,Version=string}

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Bytes": blob,
  "S3Object": {
    "Bucket": "string",
    "Name": "string",
    "Version": "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.
