Computer Vision API (2023-02-01-preview)

The Computer Vision API provides state-of-the-art algorithms to process images and return information. For example, it can be used to extract text using Read OCR, caption an image using descriptive natural language, detect objects, people, and more.

UpdateDataset

Update the properties of an existing dataset.

Status codes returned:

  • 200: Operation completed successfully.
  • 400: The request was malformed.
  • 404: A dataset with the specified name was not found.
  • 412: An If-Match header was provided, but the given ETag did not match the current ETag value.

Select the testing console in the region where you created your resource:

Open API testing console

Request URL

Request parameters

string

The name of the dataset to update.

Request headers

(optional)
string

Optional ETag for the dataset to update.
If an ETag is provided, then the dataset will be updated only if its current ETag value matches the given ETag. If the ETag values don't match, then the update operation will fail with status code 412 (Precondition Failed). This indicates that the dataset has been updated since the last time information for the dataset was obtained.
If an ETag is not provided or its value is '*', then the dataset will always be updated regardless of the current ETag value.

string
Media type of the body sent to the API.
string
Subscription key which provides access to this API. Found in your Cognitive Services accounts.

Request body

Properties to update on the existing dataset.
