Automation of getting a local image to AI Builder model.

I want to automate the process of getting an image from local file system to my Form Processing model. I am exploring two options. 


  • Trigger for form processing occurs when a file is uploaded or added to a directory in our local file-system. “Gateway” is a method to transfer local data to the microsoft server. Is this most effective way to do my task? I couldn't get it working quickly, is there a tutorial for this.

  • Trigger occurs when an HTTP request is received. Where can I find a tutorial on POSTing an image with an HTTP request, and how can I appropriately build the JSON schema? This is confusing for me and I don't know where to start.

Thank you for your consideration and help!

Hello @NikoSenkov 

It depends on the solution you want to use to send the image to be processed. Anyway, if you use the file system connector, you should:

1) Install on a computer the "on-premises data gateway".

2) Enter the mandatory fields, using windows authentication type and your credentials to connect to the computer where you are going to upload the image. In this link you have more information on the file system connector.


Hope it helps!
