Document Intelligence API - analyzeResults endpoint question

Mario Andrei 20 Reputation points


I am trying to make sense of the Document Intelligence documentation and I have a question.

For context, my resource is on the free tier, and that means 500 pages that can be passed through the OCR endpoint.

The API consists of 2 steps:

In the first step, we POST the document to the endpoint, and in the second step, we GET the document by the means of the "analyzeResults" method.

Now my question is, for how long does Document Intelligence save the results in the "analyzeResults" endpoint?

The reason for my question: It would be nice not to have to POST the document every time and save time and resources and instead just use the GET based on the ID of the already posted document. This could be achieved by just saving the "analyzeResults" ID's from the initial POST in a database and just using the GET afterwards to save on operations.

Does anyone have an answer to this, because I can't find it in the docs?

Thank you in advance!

    Hi @Mario Andrei ,

    Thank you for your question about the Document Intelligence. I can help you with that.

    Document Intelligence temporarily stores data and results in Azure storage in the same region as the request. Your data is then deleted within 24 hours from the time an analyze request was submitted.

    For more info, please look into these documents:
