Model deployment


Following the Model Deployment process, you can quickly and easily send publish them in the model library. Below is the API Reference with details to follow the process, however, we recommend to use the Model Deployment page to do so.


Only Data Scientists can deploy models.


To deploy a model, start by creating it and adding the model container image and metadata. To finish, set a model picture, add tags, and update the model’s status as active.

Below is the list of steps to deploy a model.

Model picture

Models require a model picture set at the Model Deployment. This picture is resized by Modzy and set as the model’s thumbnail, card, and background pictures before the model is published. The model’s logo picture is inherited from the account’s picture and cannot be updated. The Model service has APIs to upload and get pictures.


Accepted files

Modzy supports JPG, JPEG, and PNG pictures with a maximum size of 5 MB. The minimum resolution is 1440 x 1024 px.


Modzy resizes pictures if the width or the height dimensions vary to match the thumbnail, card, and background pictures. The resizing origin is the center of the image.

The pictures object

  "url" : "...",
  "caption" : "...",
  "alt" : "...",
  "relationType" : "..."
urlstringThe model’s picture location.
captionstringA picture’s description available to all users, set upon model deployment. Defaults to the model’s name.
altstringA picture’s alternate description for the search engine and screen readers. It matches the caption description.
relationTypestringIt defines where and how the model images are sized and visible in the Model Marketplace. Values are set to thumbnail, background, and card for the model picture and logo for the company logo.


Tags describe and filter models across the Model Library and are visible in the sidebar and search box. Modzy has three predefined tag categories: Task, Subject, and Input type and provides an option to create custom tags.

Predefined tags

Each category of predefined tags category answers a question:

TaskHow does the model process data?
SubjectWhat content does the model process?
Input TypeWhat are the model’s accepted data types?
