Inputs

The API is built around a simple idea. You send inputs (images) to the service and it returns predictions. In addition to receiving predictions on inputs, you can also 'save' inputs and their predictions to later search against. You can also 'save' inputs with concepts to later train your own model.

Add Inputs

You can add inputs one by one or in bulk. If you do send bulk, you are limited to sending 128 inputs at a time.

Images can either be publicly accessible URLs or file bytes. If you are sending file bytes, you must use base64 encoding.

You are encouraged to send inputs with your own id. This will help you later match the input to your own database. If you do not send an id, one will be created for you.

Important: adding inputs is an asynchronous operation. That means it will process indexing of your inputs through your default workflow in the background, which can take some time. In order to check the status of each input you add, see the section on Get Input by ID to look for status 30000 (INPUT_IMAGE_DOWNLOAD_SUCCESS) status code on each input to know when it's successfully been indexed.

Add an input using bytes

The data must be base64 encoded. When you add a base64 image to our servers, a copy will be stored and hosted on our servers. If you already have an image hosting service we recommend using it and adding images via the url parameter.

Add Inputs With Concepts

If you would like to add an input with concepts, you can do so like this. Concepts play an important role in creating your own models using your own concepts. You can learn more about creating your own models above. Concepts also help you search for inputs. You can learn more about search here.

When you add a concept to an input, you need to indicate whether the concept is present in the image or if it is not present.

You can add inputs with concepts as either a URL or bytes.

Bulk Update Inputs With Concepts

You can update an existing input using its Id. This is useful if you'd like to add concepts to an input after its already been added.

js
python
java
csharp
objective-c
php
cURL
js
app.inputs.mergeConcepts([
{
id: "{id1}",
concepts: [
{
id: "tree",
value: true
},
{
id: "water",
value: false
}
]
},
{
id: "{id2}",
concepts: [
{
id: "animal",
value: true
},
{
id: "fruit",
value: false
}
]
}
]).then(
function(response) {
// do something with response
},
function(err) {
// there was an error
}
);
python
from clarifai.rest import ClarifaiApp
app = ClarifaiApp(api_key='YOUR_API_KEY')
input_ids = ["{id1}", "{id2}"]
concept_pairs = [
[('tree', True), ('water', False)],
[('animal', True), ('fruit', False)],
]
app.inputs.bulk_merge_concepts(input_ids, concept_pairs)
java
// Coming soon
csharp
// Coming soon
objective-c
ClarifaiConcept *newConcept = [[ClarifaiConcept alloc] initWithConceptID:@"tree"];
[_app getInput:@"{input_id}" completion:^(ClarifaiInput *input, NSError *error) {
// Add tree concept to each current input's concept list.
NSMutableArray *newConceptList = [NSMutableArray arrayWithArray:input.concepts];
[newConceptList addObject:newConcept];
input.concepts = newConceptList;
// Merge the new list for one or more inputs.
[_app mergeConceptsForInputs:@[input] completion:^(NSArray<ClarifaiInput *> *inputs, NSError *error) {
NSLog(@"updated inputs: %@", inputs);

Bulk Delete Concepts From A List Of Inputs

You can bulk delete multiple concepts from a list of inputs:

js
python
java
csharp
objective-c
php
cURL
js
app.inputs.deleteConcepts([
{
id: "{id1}",
concepts: [
{ id: "tree" },
{ id: "water" }
]
},
{
id: "{id2}",
concepts: [
{ id: "animal" },
{ id: "fruit" }
]
}
]).then(
function(response) {
// do something with response
},
function(err) {
// there was an error
}
);
python
from clarifai.rest import ClarifaiApp
app = ClarifaiApp(api_key='YOUR_API_KEY')
input_ids = ["{id1}", "{id2}"]
concept_pairs = [
['tree', 'water'],
['animal', 'fruit']
]
app.inputs.bulk_delete_concepts(input_ids, concept_pairs)
java
// Coming soon
csharp
// Coming soon
objective-c
ClarifaiConcept *concept = [[ClarifaiConcept alloc] initWithConceptName:@"cute cat"];

Delete Input By Id

You can delete a single input by id:

js
python
java
csharp
objective-c
php
cURL
js
app.inputs.delete(INPUT_ID).then(
function(response) {
// do something with response
},
function(err) {
// there was an error
}
);
python
from clarifai.rest import ClarifaiApp
app = ClarifaiApp(api_key='YOUR_API_KEY')
app.inputs.delete("INPUT_ID")
java
client.deleteInput("INPUT_ID")
.executeSync();
csharp
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using Clarifai.API;
namespace YourNamespace
{
public class YourClassName
{
public static async Task Main()
{
var client = new ClarifaiClient("YOUR_API_KEY");
await client.DeleteInputs("INPUT_ID")
.ExecuteAsync();
}
}
}
objective-c
[_app deleteInputsByIDList:@[INPUT_ID] completion:^(NSError *error) {
NSLog(@"input has been deleted");
}];
php
use Clarifai\API\ClarifaiClient;
$client = new ClarifaiClient('YOUR_API_KEY');
$response = $client->deleteInputs('INPUT_ID')
->executeSync();
if ($response->isSuccessful()) {
echo "Response is successful.\n";
} else {
echo "Response is not successful. Reason: \n";
echo $response->status()->description() . "\n";
echo $response->status()->errorDetails() . "\n";
echo "Status code: " . $response->status()->statusCode();
}
cURL
curl -X DELETE \
-H "Authorization: Key YOUR_API_KEY" \
https://api.clarifai.com/v2/inputs/<INPUT_ID>

Delete A List Of Inputs

You can also delete multiple inputs in one API call. This will happen asynchronously.

js
python
java
csharp
objective-c
php
cURL
js
app.inputs.delete([{id1}, {id2}]).then(
function(response) {
// do something with response
},
function(err) {
// there was an error
}
);
