I am using the CV activities without mentioning the API key either in the project setting or the CV scope.
There are a couple of things I am wondering about. If somebody can help me understand this better?
What happens if I don’t use the API key and deploy the process via the orchestrator to a robot?
How is the accuracy of CV activities with or without API Key mentioned.
What does the (Synced) functionality do if the API key is provided? Does it sync that API key across the project?
Do I need to specify an API key in the CV scope if I have specified one in the project setting?
What does this CV API exactly do? What parameters does it take? what response does it throw back for the activities to use?
If the Studio / Robot / Assistant you are using is logged into cloud.uipath.com (instead of a private instance of Orchestrator) we are using that logged in user to fetch your ApiKey automatically for ComputerVision.
If your Studio is connected to cloud Orchestrator but your robots are not it is mandatory to specifiy the ApiKey in your project settings or your CvScope in order for the robots to be able to run.
Regarding the sync notation: This means that the setting is synced across all CvScopes from that file (and only that file). The easiest way to set the ApiKey is setting it in the Project Settings.
There is no difference in detection if you are using ApiKey or the logged in method.
If you have any other question, please don’t hesitate to ask.
