What does document_id stand for?
While Docparser can be used by anyone without the need for coding skills, we are also a solution for developers and system integrators. To make an uploaded document identifiable across the entire lifecycle (importing, preprocessing, parsing, webhook dispatching), we generate a unique document ID (document_id) for each document.
This document ID is generated at the moment when we import the document, for example when you upload a document with our API.
Please note: If you are using our document splitting feature, new "child" documents will be generated which have their own document ID. This means that if you import a document through our API, you will see a document ID which later doesn't exist anymore. This is because the original document is voided once split into child documents. However, you can still query our API by using the original document ID and will get the parsing results of all child documents in return.
