Key-Value Pair Extraction Data Types


PSPDFKit Processor has been deprecated and replaced by PSPDFKit Document Engine. All PSPDFKit Processor licenses will work as before and be supported until 15 May 2024 (we will contact you about license migration). To start using Document Engine, refer to the migration guide. With Document Engine, you’ll have access to robust new capabilities (read the blog for more information).

PSPDFKit’s key-value pair (KVP) extraction engine automatically detects the data type of values. For example, the engine recognizes the value as an email and the value +100 847 738 227 as a phone number.

The following data types are supported:

  • Business Identifier Code (BIC)

  • Credit card number

  • Currency

  • Date and time

  • Email address

  • International Bank Account Number (IBAN)

  • Number

  • Percentage

  • Phone number

  • Postal address

  • Post code

  • Social Security number (SSN)

  • String

  • Symbol

  • Time period

  • Unique Identifier (UID)

  • URL

  • VAT ID

  • Vehicle identification number (VID)

When the engine doesn’t recognize the data type of a value, it categorizes the value as a string.
