Get template id (FormId) used for extracting values from Form Extractor

Hello,

I have a project that uses DU. For data extraction I am using Form Extractor in which I have 5 different templates.

My question is - how can I print (using Write Line activity) the FormId or the FormName of the template that is being used during the extraction?

For better visualization, this is part of the json file that generates one of the templates:
{
“DocumentTypeId”: “HRDocument.Document.Invoice”,
“FormId”: “3ddfde2d”,
“FormName”: “template1”,
“OriginalFileExtension”: “jpg”,
“Pages”: [{ …

As we know, for example, we can print the document type id after classification using autoClassification(0).DocumentTypeId. I need to get the same, but for the used template.

Best wishes,
Yoana

There is no way to get that FormId or FormName currently in the activity.

If you are stuck not knowing which template matched and you need to see it for debugging purposes, it should buried somewhere in the debug/trace logs. The problem is these are not configured/enabled by default. If you are familiar with nlog you can try to configure them for the robot/executor, on “debug” level. Sadly I don’t have more specific instructions, as it’s not something I played with recently.
