What is a tag

A tag is a label assigned to a document to provide additional information, classification, or organization. Tags help in categorizing, tracking, and retrieving specific data points based on criteria or preferences. They enhance customization, organization, and analysis capabilities within the processed data by Veryfi.

Tags in Veryfi

In addition to categories, Veryfi also supports the use of tags. Tags provide users with the ability to apply specific labels to API call documents and individual line items. This feature allows for further customization and organization of data at both the document and line item levels.

Users can assign one or multiple tags to capture additional information or add further context to their processed data. This flexibility in applying tags enhances the granularity and specificity of data organization and retrieval within Veryfi.

There are two fields in Veryfi for this purpose

  • tags - document level tags

  • line_item_level_ tags - document level tags

There is one request parameter

  • tags "body" parameter to parse a tag or a list of tags along with a request.

👀 Please refer to API Documentation to get the full API schema and limitations.
