Using Face API and Text Extraction

I want to extract information from an uploaded image i.e. Identity Card . I am creating a chat journey in PVA and want to call an action via power automate that will use Face API and then send the response back to PVA. Is it possible to extract the information from the Identity card and detect image and send the response back to PVA? If yes, how would I do so? Below is an image I am trying to use Detect faces api but i m lost on what would be the return type.

Hi @sudip_viper 


After detecting the face, you might also want to identify the person and send it it to the Virtual agent right? For that, you first have to create the person in the face API resource and then train the model and then add an http action to identify as that action is not directly available with the connector. You can check out this implementation here: 

Hope this Helps!
