Overview

This feature helps to provide an understanding of the results generated or the classifications performed by the DOCUMENT_ASSEMBLER plugin.

  • The user can input files to be classified in the test-classification folder, which is present in the batch class folder.
  • The input tiff/pdf files can be single-page or multi-page files.
  • All the files present in the folder will be processed according to the batch class settings.

All the required plugins that are needed to support the DOCUMENT_ASSEMBLER need to be present in the batch class workflow. By default, Ephesoft Transact executes the classification set in the DOCUMENT_ASSEMBLER plugin.

Ephesoft Transact also provides a dropdown menu to support four types of classification, as follows:

  • Search Classification
  • Barcode Classification
  • Image Classification
  • Automatic Classification

The results are shown in a tabular form with following details about the images that are input for classification:

  1. Classification Type: The type of classification performed on the set of inputs.
  2. Document Type: The type of document classified for this input page.
  3. Document Identifier: The identifier of the document classified.
  4. Document Confidence: The confidence value for this document generated.
  5. Page Name: The name of the page given as input for classification.
  6. Page Identifier: The identifier of the page in accordance to the inputs provided.
  7. Page Classification: The classification done for the page. This contains the name of document type for which image is classified with the name of page type: FIRST_PAGE, MIDDLE_PAGE or LAST_PAGE.
  8. Page Confidence: The confidence generated for this page after classification.
  9. Classification Sample: The name of the classification/learned file name from the lucene-search-classification-sample folders. This value is only populated in the case of Search Classification. For all other classification, it is set as NA.
