A workflow with the Mindee node

# 1. Start node

The Start node exists by default when you create a new workflow.

# 2. HTTP Request (GET)

This example workflow uses the HTTP Request node to make a GET request to download the image of a receipt. You can also use other nodes, for example, the Box node, to get the images of the receipts you want to use.

  1. Enter the URL of the image in the URL field. For example, https://miro.medium.com/max/1400/0*1T9GkAb93w5NSMsf.
  2. Select 'File' from the Response Format dropdown list.
  3. Click on Execute Node to run the node.

In the screenshot below, you will notice that the HTTP Request node downloads the image from the URL. This image (binary data) can now be used by the other nodes in the workflow.

# 3. Mindee node (predict: receipt)

This node will get the image of the receipt (binary data) from the HTTP Request node and extract the information from it.

  1. Select 'Receipt' from the Resource dropdown list.
  2. You'll have to enter credentials for the Mindee node. You can find out how to do that here.
  3. Click on Execute Node to run the workflow.

In the screenshot below, you will notice that the node extracts the information from the image that it got from the HTTP Request node.
