DataWedge 11.2

New in DataWedge 11.2

  • New options to capture data when executing advanced tasks from a workflow process using Workflow Input with corresponding SetConfig API parameters and Workflow Input Programmer's Guide to retrieve data programmatically:

The specific use cases are: vehicle identification numbers (VIN), tire identification numbers (TIN), license plates and utility meters. Additionally, OCR can extract specific information from drivers licenses and identification cards.
