Sensible offers you several ways to troubleshoot your configs and extractions.

API logging levels

To troubleshoot extractions in API or SDK responses, you can add a verbosity level to a config. For more information, see verbosity.

Inspect extracted text

Sometimes, the text you see in the rendered document doesn't match the direct-text extraction. To inspect all the text Sensible extracted from a document, use the following config:

  "fields": [
      "id": "all_lines_in_doc",
      "method": {
        "id": "documentRange",
        "includeAnchor": true
      "anchor": {
        "match": {
          "type": "first"

Inspect lines and fields

You can inspect a line to see:

  • the extracted text (this text might not match the text in the rendered document)
  • dimensions of the line boundaries
  • which fields interact with that line:

Inspect SenseML

The Sensible app visually represents SenseML queries in rendered documents using colored symbols. For more information, see UI guide.

Lint SenseML

The SenseML pane has a built-in linter for both JSON and the SenseML model. If you see a warning about invalid JSON, then hover over the red-underlined JSON to see an error message:

You can also use the linter to autocomplete parameters.
