start-expense-analysis

Description

Starts the asynchronous analysis of invoices or receipts for data like contact information, items purchased, and vendor names.

StartExpenseAnalysis can analyze text in documents that are in JPEG, PNG, and PDF format. The documents must be stored in an Amazon S3 bucket. Use the DocumentLocation parameter to specify the name of your S3 bucket and the name of the document in that bucket.

StartExpenseAnalysis returns a job identifier (JobId ) that you will provide to GetExpenseAnalysis to retrieve the results of the operation. When the analysis of the input invoices/receipts is finished, Amazon Textract publishes a completion status to the Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topic that you provide to the NotificationChannel . To obtain the results of the invoice and receipt analysis operation, ensure that the status value published to the Amazon SNS topic is SUCCEEDED . If so, call GetExpenseAnalysis , and pass the job identifier (JobId ) that was returned by your call to StartExpenseAnalysis .

For more information, see Analyzing Invoices and Receipts .

Options

--document-location (structure)

The location of the document to be processed.

S3Object -> (structure)

The Amazon S3 bucket that contains the input document.

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 and TIFF format files.

Version -> (string)

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

Shorthand Syntax:

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

JSON Syntax:

{
  "S3Object": {
    "Bucket": "string",
    "Name": "string",
    "Version": "string"
  }
}

--client-request-token (string)

The idempotent token that's used to identify the start request. If you use the same token with multiple StartDocumentTextDetection requests, the same JobId is returned. Use ClientRequestToken to prevent the same job from being accidentally started more than once. For more information, see Calling Amazon Textract Asynchronous Operations

--job-tag (string)

An identifier you specify that's included in the completion notification published to the Amazon SNS topic. For example, you can use JobTag to identify the type of document that the completion notification corresponds to (such as a tax form or a receipt).

--notification-channel (structure)

The Amazon SNS topic ARN that you want Amazon Textract to publish the completion status of the operation to.

SNSTopicArn -> (string)

The Amazon SNS topic that Amazon Textract posts the completion status to.

RoleArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an IAM role that gives Amazon Textract publishing permissions to the Amazon SNS topic.

Shorthand Syntax:

SNSTopicArn=string,RoleArn=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "SNSTopicArn": "string",
  "RoleArn": "string"
}

--output-config (structure)

Sets if the output will go to a customer defined bucket. By default, Amazon Textract will save the results internally to be accessed by the GetExpenseAnalysis operation.

S3Bucket -> (string)

The name of the bucket your output will go to.

S3Prefix -> (string)

The prefix of the object key that the output will be saved to. When not enabled, the prefix will be “textract_output".

Shorthand Syntax:

S3Bucket=string,S3Prefix=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "S3Bucket": "string",
  "S3Prefix": "string"
}

--kms-key-id (string)

The KMS key used to encrypt the inference results. This can be in either Key ID or Key Alias format. When a KMS key is provided, the KMS key will be used for server-side encryption of the objects in the customer bucket. When this parameter is not enabled, the result will be encrypted server side,using SSE-S3.

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Output

JobId -> (string)

A unique identifier for the text detection job. The JobId is returned from StartExpenseAnalysis . A JobId value is only valid for 7 days.
