Task Metadata

Tasks objects have a metadata parameter. You can use this parameter to attach key-value data to tasks.

Metadata is useful for storing additional, structured information on an object - especially information that can help you ingest the task response or keep track of what content this task corresponds to.

Metadata is not used by Scale (e.g., to affect how the task is done).

Common use-cases for metadata:

  • Internal identifiers
  • File paths
  • Scenario / Run / Case identifiers
  • Environment details (time of day, location)
  • Sensor information
  • Guideline / Taxonomy versions
