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 Robocorp Vault secret. The vault name needs to be given in library init or with keyword Set Robocorp 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 Robocorp Vault in the library init

*** Settings *** Library RPA.Cloud.Azure robocorp_vault_name=azure *** Tasks *** Init Azure services Init Text Analytics Service use_robocorp_vault=${TRUE}

Method 2. setting Robocorp Vault with keyword

*** Settings *** Library RPA.Cloud.Azure *** Tasks *** Init Azure services Set Robocorp Vault vault_name=googlecloud Init Text Analytics Service use_robocorp_vault=${TRUE}

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


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