This section explains how to create a Form Recognizer cognitive service inside a Resource group.
To create a Form Recognizer cognitive service, go to the portal's home page and look for the Cognitive Services icon under the Azure services ribbon. Notice also that there is a new ribbon (Recent Resources) that displays the most recently deployed resources (in this example, the resource group and the storage account already created).
You are directed to the Cognitive Services' page. To create a new cognitive service (cloud-based service with REST APIs and client library SDKs), click the Add button located in the options ribbon. If you do not have any cognitive service, you can also click the Create cognitive services button located at the bottom.
The cognitive services' Marketplace page opens for you to select the service you want to create. You can search for the desired service by category using the left panel, or if you know the name of the service beforehand, you can type it in the search bar. Type Form Recognizer in the search bar, and look for the Form Recognizer cognitive service on the search results. Once you have located it, click the service's icon.
The Form Recognizer cognitive service's page opens. Here, you can find useful information about the service such as an overview, plans, usage information and support, and reviews. Likewise, you can create a Form Recognizer cognitive service by clicking the Create button.
The Create Form Recognizer wizard opens. This wizard has the same three steps as the wizard for creating a resource group: Basics, Tags and Review+create. The Basics step allows you to define the Project details, and the Instance details. As you did for the storage account creation, select under Project details the subscription in which the cognitive service is going to be created, as well as the resource group that is going to contain it. These are Azure subscription 1 and RG_FormRecognizer, respectively.
In the Instance details, define the characteristics of your Form Recognizer cognitive service, meaning the region where it is going to be deployed, its name, and the pricing tier.
Form Recognizer cognitive service has two pricing tiers: F0 Free (0-500 pages free per month) and S0 Standard. The prices for the standard tier depend on the region in which the service is deployed and the type of document processed. For the East (US) region, the prices are: $50 USD per 1,000 pages for custom and invoice documents, and $10 USD per 1,000 pages for documents related to prebuilt models. For more information on Form Recognizer's pricing, refer to Cognitive Services Pricing - Form Recognizer API.
In this example, the following characteristics are defined:
•Region: East US
•Pricing tier: Free F0
Assuming you do not want to configure Tags, click the Review+create button.
In the same way as when the resource group and the storage account were created, Azure validates that the Form Recognizer cognitive service can indeed be created. Also, bear in mind that you must review the information you entered and, as it is a service, do not forget to read the terms and conditions for its usage. If everything is okay and you agree with the terms, click Create.
Azure starts the deployment of your Form Recognizer cognitive service resource. After a few seconds, a message is displayed stating that the cognitive service deployment is complete. Furthermore, a notification pops-up at the top right corner confirming that the deployment succeeded.
