Document Intelligence query field extraction

Document Intelligence now supports query field extractions using Azure OpenAI capabilities. With query field extraction, you can add fields to the extraction process using a query request without the need for added training.


Document Intelligence Studio query field extraction is currently available with the general document model starting with the 2023-02-28-preview and later releases.

Select query fields

For query field extraction, specify the fields you want to extract and Document Intelligence analyzes the document accordingly. Here's an example:

  • If you're processing a contract in the Document Intelligence Studio, use the 2023-07-31 version:

  • In addition to the query fields, the response includes text, tables, selection marks, general document key-value pairs, and other relevant data.
