Retrain FormsRecognizer with same id

Christian Wellnitz 61 Reputation points

Would it be possible to have an update model function in the api ?
The problem is when i train my model i get a model key.
Then i retrain that model adding new documents and get a new key.
I would like to have the same model key for the update training.
Or why is that functionality not possible ?

    @Christian Wellnitz Re-training your project to create or update the existing model id is not possible with form recognizer due to the current design. A new model id is generated after every train event. You can however use a friendly name while training a model for model management. This option is available using the label tool or the API by adding the ModelName parameter in the body of the request.


    "source": "<storage_uri>",
    "sourceFilter": {
    "prefix": "<form_prefix>",
    "includeSubFolders": false
    "useLabelFile": false,
    "ModelName": "Rohit"
