Access machine learning models with Azure AI

Azure, a tool from Microsoft, provides out-of-the-box features to simplify app creation. One of these features is called Computer Vision, a powerful AI tool that explains what’s in an image. With the Describe image feature in Glide, you can have an image analyzed by Azure, and it will tell you what’s in the image.

Adding and Configuring the Integration

  1. In Glide, click the Settings icon in the upper-right corner.

  2. Navigate to the Integrations tab and then select Azure.

  3. Click the Add button.

  4. Next, log into your Azure Portal account.

  5. Create a Cognitive Services resource, if you don’t already have one.

  6. Navigate to the Keys and Endpoint page on your Azure resource.

  7. Back in Glide, add your API Key and Endpoint in your Azure integration settings.


The Azure integration in Glide currently supports one feature: Describe image.

Describe image

The Describe image feature lets you send an image to Azure, and Azure will tell you what’s in the image. This can be added to a Component that supports Actions or added to an action sequence in the Action Editor.

To set it up, you'll need to create a column to house the Image URL, and a second column to house the image description you generate with Azure.
