[ aws . lookoutvision ]



Detects anomalies in an image that you supply.

The response from DetectAnomalies includes a boolean prediction that the image contains one or more anomalies and a confidence value for the prediction.


Before calling DetectAnomalies , you must first start your model with the StartModel operation. You are charged for the amount of time, in minutes, that a model runs and for the number of anomaly detection units that your model uses. If you are not using a model, use the StopModel operation to stop your model.

This operation requires permissions to perform the lookoutvision:DetectAnomalies operation.

--project-name <value>
--model-version <value>
--body <value>
--content-type <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--project-name (string)

The name of the project that contains the model version that you want to use.

--model-version (string)

The version of the model that you want to use.

--body (blob)

The unencrypted image bytes that you want to analyze.

--content-type (string)

The type of the image passed in Body . Valid values are image/png (PNG format images) and image/jpeg (JPG format images).

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Type -> (string)

The type of the image.

IsAnomalous -> (boolean)
