Attach items

You can attach items via a list of URLs or via URLs in a CSV file.

To attach items via a list of URLs:

sa.attach_items(
    project = "Cars",
    attachments = [
        { "name": "16797.jpg", 
          "url": "https://test-1212.s3.amazonaws.com/50k2sep/0.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIA5BP2G2NHEPGBCUX2&Signature=oNlHqhZHiK5GzgWZi%2F46dIoQ%2B%2BA%3D&Expires=1651063405" },
        { "name": "16798.jpg", 
          "url": "https://test-1212.s3.amazonaws.com/50k2sep/1.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIA5BP2G2NHEPGBCUX2&Signature=bYWiGrW8ET56pUcTCrlqhF5EX%2BY%3D&Expires=1651063405" },
        { "name": "16799.jpg", 
          "url": "https://test-1212.s3.amazonaws.com/50k2sep/10.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIA5BP2G2NHEPGBCUX2&Signature=OXtzqrgAlEViDbTM5RHeOA%2BGBLk%3D&Expires=1651063405" }
    ],
    annotation_status="NotStarted"
)

To attach items via CSV files:

sa.attach_items(
    project = "Trucks",
    attachments = "/Users/joshbrown/trucks_image_urls.csv", 
    annotation_status="NotStarted"
)

Move items

To move items in bulk from one folder to another:

sa.move_items(
    source = "Folder 1", 
    destination = "Folder 2", 
    items = ["analysis1.txt","analysis2.txt"], 
)

Copy items

To copy items from one folder and paste them in another folder:

sa.copy_items(
    source = "Folder 1", 
    destination = "Folder 2", 
    items = ["947483.jpeg","847484.jpeg"], 
    include_annotations = False
)

Set annotation status

To set the annotation status of one item or multiple items:

SAClient.set_annotation_statuses(
    project = "Sentiment Analysis",
    annotation_status = "QualityCheck",
    items = ["56038.txt", "56039.txt"]
)

Query

To run a query:

SAClient.query(
    project = "Project 1",
    query = "metadata(status = InProgress AND annotatorEmail = [email protected])" 
)

This function returns the metadata of the items in a list form.

To get all the items from a subset:

SAClient.query(
  project="Image Project",
  query=None,
  subset="Subset 1"
)

The output will be the metadata of the subset's items. Here's an example:

[{'createdAt': '2022-04-03T13:38:58.000Z', 'updatedAt': '2022-04-28T15:14:01.000Z',
 'name': 'Image 1.jpeg',
 'path': 'Project 1/Subfolder 1',
 'url': None,
 'annotator_email': '[email protected]',
 'qa_email': None,
 'annotation_status': 'InProgress',
 'entropy_value': 8140.11,
 'prediction_status': 'NotStarted',
 'segmentation_status': None,
 'approval_status': 'disapproved',
 'is_pinned': False},
{'createdAt': '2022-04-03T13:38:59.000Z',
 'updatedAt': '2022-05-06T14:53:24.000Z',
 'name': 'Image 2.jpeg',
 'path': 'Project 1/Subfolder 1',
 'url': None,
 'annotator_email': '[email protected]',
 'qa_email': None,
 'annotation_status': 'Completed',
 'entropy_value': 8691.52,
 'prediction_status': 'NotStarted',
 'segmentation_status': None,
 'approval_status': None,
 'is_pinned': False}]

To run a query in a subset:

SAClient.query(
  project="Image Project",
  query="metadata(annotatorEmail = [email protected])", 
  subset="Subset 1"
)

The output is the metadata of the query's items. Here's an example:

[{'createdAt': '2022-04-03T13:38:58.000Z', 'updatedAt': '2022-04-28T15:14:01.000Z',
 'name': 'Image 1.jpeg',
 'path': 'Project 1/Subfolder 1',
 'url': None,
 'annotator_email': '[email protected]',
 'qa_email': None,
 'annotation_status': 'InProgress',
 'entropy_value': 8140.11,
 'prediction_status': 'NotStarted',
 'segmentation_status': None,
 'approval_status': 'disapproved',
 'is_pinned': False}]

Search items

To search for items in a project:

superannotate.search_items(
  project="Project 1")

To search for items whose names contain car:

superannotate.search_items(
  project="Project 1", 
  name_contains="car")

To search for items whose names contain car and have the annotation status InProgress:

superannotate.search_items(
  project="Project 1", 
  name_contains="car",
  annotation_status="InProgress")

To search for items by the assigned Annotator and QA’s email addresses:

superannotate.search_items(
  project="Project 1", 
  name_contains="car",
  annotation_status="InProgress",
  annotator_email="[email protected]",
  qa_email="[email protected]")

📘

Annotation status

The annotation_status field can have one of the following values: NotStarted, InProgress, QualityCheck, Returned, Completed, and Skipped.

To search for items in the whole project, including folders:

superannotate.search_items(
  project="Project 1", 
  name_contains="car",
  annotation_status="InProgress",
  annotator_email="[email protected]",
  qa_email="[email protected]",      
  recursive=True
)

📘

The function will return a list of metadata objects for items that satisfy search criteria.

To search for items whose name contains image_1 with their custom metadata:

SAClient.search_items(
   project="Medical Annotations",
   name_contains="image_1",
   include_custom_metadata=True
)

The output will be:

[
   {
       "name": "image_1.jpeg",
       "path": "Medical Annotations/Study",
       "url": "https://sa-public-files.s3.../image_1.png",
       "annotation_status": "NotStarted",
       "annotator_email": None,
       "qa_email": None,
       "entropy_value": None,
       "createdAt": "2022-02-15T20:46:44.000Z",
       "updatedAt": "2022-02-15T20:46:44.000Z",
       "custom_metadata": {
           "study_date": "2021-12-31",
           "patient_id": "62078f8a756ddb2ca9fc9660",
           "patient_sex": "female",
           "medical_specialist": "[email protected]",
       }
   }
]

If include_custom_metadata is set to False, then the output will be the following:

[
   {
       "name": "image_1.jpeg",
       "path": "Medical Annotations/Study",
       "url": "https://sa-public-files.s3.../image_1.png",
       "annotation_status": "NotStarted",
       "annotator_email": None,
       "qa_email": None,
       "entropy_value": None,
       "createdAt": "2022-02-15T20:46:44.000Z",
       "updatedAt": "2022-02-15T20:46:44.000Z"
   }
]

Assign and unsassign items

To assign items to a user:

assignments = [item['name'] for item in sa.search_items("Project 1")] print(assignments)

sa.assign_items(
   project = "Project 1", 
   items = assignments,
   user = '[email protected]' 
)

To unassign an item from a user:

assignments = [item['name'] for item in sa.search_items("Project 1")] print(assignments)

sa.unassign_items(
   project = "Project 1", 
   items = assignments,
)

Delete items

To delete items:

sa.delete_items(
   project="Project 1", 
   items=['img_1.png', 'img_2.png']
)

Get item metadata

To get an item’s metadata:

superannotate.get_item_metadata(
    project="Project 1",
    item_name="Image1.png")

Here’s the returned data.
