Description

Azure is a library for operating with Microsoft Azure API endpoints.

List of supported service names:

Azure authentication

Authentication for Azure is set with service subscription key which can be given to the library in two different ways.

  • Method 1 as environment variables, either service specific environment variable for example AZURE_TEXTANALYTICS_KEY or with common key AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_KEY which will be used for all the services.
  • Method 2 as Robocloud vault secret. The vault name needs to be given in library init or with keyword Set Robocloud Vault. Secret keys are expected to match environment variable names.

Method 1. subscription key using environment variable

*** Settings ***
Library   RPA.Cloud.Azure

*** Tasks ***
Init Azure services
    # NO parameters for client, expecting to get subscription key
    # with AZURE_TEXTANALYTICS_KEY or AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_KEY environment variable
    Init Text Analytics Service

Method 2. setting Robocloud Vault in the library init

*** Settings ***
Library   RPA.Cloud.Azure  robocloud_vault_name=azure

*** Tasks ***
Init Azure services
    Init Text Analytics Service  use_robocloud_vault=${TRUE}

Method 2. setting Robocloud Vault with keyword

*** Settings ***
Library   RPA.Cloud.Azure

*** Tasks ***
Init Azure services
    Set Robocloud Vault          vault_name=googlecloud
    Init Text Analytics Service  use_robocloud_vault=${TRUE}

Examples

Robot Framework

This is a section which describes how to use the library in your Robot Framework tasks.

*** Settings ***
Library  RPA.Cloud.Azure

*** Variables ***
${IMAGE_URL}   IMAGE_URL
${FEATURES}    Faces,ImageType

*** Tasks ***
Visioning image information
   Init Computer Vision Service
   &{result}   Vision Analyze  image_url=${IMAGE_URL}  visual_features=${FEATURES}
   @{faces}    Set Variable  ${result}[faces]
   FOR  ${face}  IN   @{faces}
      Log  Age: ${face}[age], Gender: ${face}[gender], Rectangle: ${face}[faceRectangle]
   END

Python

This is a section which describes how to use the library in your own Python modules.
