UiPath.IntelligentOCR.Activities v2.0.0

Release Date: 25th April 2019

New Features and Improvements

As you're probably used to by now, month after month we draw closer to our final goal of creating the ultimate document processing platform. Alongside the first enterprise release of this year, the IntelligentOCR activities pack has been imbued with some new activities, as follows:

The UiPath.DocumentProcessing.Contracts pack enables you to implement your own extractor and classifier activities by simply referencing it. This assembly contains all the classification and extraction interfaces that underlie the IntelligentOCR activities.

The Taxonomy Manager now displays the Document Type ID of the document type that is being edited.

Breaking Changes

While migrating to the public UiPath.DocumentProcessing.Contracts, the IntelligentOCR v2.0.0 activity pack introduces breaking changes for the Classify Document Scope and Train Classifiers And Extractors activities.

Known Issues

  • Opening the Data Extraction Wizard throws an error when the Data Extraction Scope activity or a parent activity are commented out.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue which caused the Present Validation Station activity to throw an exception when processing certain .pdf files.
  • Digitize Document was unable to detect check boxes in certain documents.

UiPath.IntelligentOCR.Activities v1.6.1

Release Date: 22nd February 2019

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue which caused the Process Document activity to throw an error when processing large PDF files.

UiPath.IntelligentOCR.Activities v1.6.0

Release Date: 20th February 2019

New Features and Improvements

The Taxonomy Manager is the next piece of the document processing puzzle, a wizard created to help you build custom taxonomy files which can then be reused across processes.

We have developed the Load Taxonomy activity, which grants you the ability to load a taxonomy created with the aid of the Taxonomy Manager wizard into a variable which can then be passed on to other activities.

The DegreeOfParallelism property has been added to the Digitize Document activity, enabling you to perform OCR analysis on multiple pages simultaneously. This is not a breaking change, so old workflows still function properly after updating to the latest version of the pack.

The IntelligentOCR pack is now upgraded to .NET Framework v4.6.1.

The MatchingDocumentDefinition property of the FCDocument variable has been exposed. Assigning it to a variable generates the same result as a Classify Document activity.

Known Issues

  • The Tesseract OCR engine fails to properly read images with black borders.

UiPath.IntelligentOCR.Activities v1.5.0

Release Date: 18th February 2019

New Features and Improvements

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue which caused the Process Document activity to crash when processing documents that contained check boxes.
  • Certain types of .pdf files caused the Digitize Document activity to throw errors.
  • Certain types of .jpg files caused the Digitize Document activity to throw errors.
  • In certain circumstances, editing a table with confidence below 100% and making no changes to it modified the confidence to 100%.
  • Fixed an issue which caused the Extract manual token as reference for this field button to remain disabled.

UiPath.IntelligentOCR.Activities v1.4.0

Release Date: 21st January 2019

Improvements

The Digitize Document activity has been improved performance-wise with some backend changes.

Bug Fixes

Fixed an issue which caused certain UI elements to flicker in the Validation Station wizard.

The OperatorConfirmed flag in the ExtractionResults JSON file remained False regardless of whether an user had confirmed the extraction results or not.

In certain cases, the Prepare Validation Station Data activity could not read document information from FCDocument variables.

UiPath.IntelligentOCR.Activities v1.3.0

Release Date: 10th January 2019

This new year brings two more languages in the entire UiPath Platform - French and Russian. Since we layed down the foundations of localization in our previous release, we are continuing our efforts in bringing you a more immersive experience and lowering the language barrier bit by bit.

UiPath.IntelligentOCR.Activities v1.2.1

Release Date: 14th December 2018

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue which caused the FlexiCapture engine to always return a confidence score of 100.

UiPath.IntelligentOCR.Activities v1.2.0

Release Date: 12th December 2018

The IntelligentOCR package has received a major update, as we've developed three new activities that enable you to approach Document Processing in a much simpler manner. The new activities are:

  • Present Validation Station - offers attended users the ability to make real-time CRUD (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) operations on documents for the purpose of classification and human data validation and extraction.
  • Prepare Validation Station Data - creates a bridge between FlexiCapture's Process Document activity and the new Validation Station, ensuring a much more user-friendly data validation experience.
  • Digitize Document - provides a new way of generating text versions from incoming documents, being able to process any PDF and most image formats.

UiPath.IntelligentOCR.Activities v1.1.6855.16979

Release Date: 8th October 2018

The moment is finally here - the entire UiPath Platform has been localized, so that you can have a truly immersive experience, from install to design and execution. Now, besides English, you can access everything, including our online documentation, in Japanese.

To step up on our OCR game, coming to the aid of your digitization efforts, we have integrated the capabilities of the ABBYY FlexiCapture SDK into the new UiPath.IntelligentOCR.Activities pack, which contains the following:

  • IntelligentOCR Scope - Initializes the ABBYY FlexiCapture engine and provides a scope for all IntelligentOCR activities.
  • Process Document - Processes a document with the FlexiCapture engine and converts it to an FCDocument variable which can be used in other activities.
  • Classify Document - Enables you to classify a given document based on an ABBYY classifier file and one or more templates.
  • Export Document - Exports FlexiCapture documents to one of the .csv, .xml, .xls or .json formats.
  • Get Field - Retrieves a specified field from an FCDocument variable and returns it as an FCField variable.
