Amazon Textract Results Notification

Amazon Textract sends the status of an analysis request to an Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topic. To get the notification from an Amazon SNS topic, use an Amazon SQS queue or an AWS Lambda function. For more information, see Calling Amazon Textract Asynchronous Operations. For an example, see Detecting or Analyzing Text in a Multipage Document.

The status message sent by Amazon Simple Notification Service to Amazon SQS has the following JSON format:

{ "JobId": "String", "Status": "String", "API": "String", "JobTag": "String", "Timestamp": Number, "DocumentLocation": { "S3ObjectName": "String", "S3Bucket": "String" } }
