Adding asset metadata

In Kili, you can add extra information to an asset by using asset metadata. This can be information on document language, custom quality metrics, agreement metrics etc.

You can add metadata by using our Python API. For details on how to do that, follow our Python API documentation (method name: append_many_to_dataset).


By default, all newly-added metadata is treated as strings. In some cases (for example to enable easier filtering by metadata), you can change metadata type to number. To do that, use the update_properties_in_project method. The metadata type will be converted to the float type.

Refer to this example code:
