Labelbox documentation

Update/delete imported annotations

When a labeler submits an asset with imported annotations, those submitted annotations must be deleted before you can re-import annotations. To update imported annotations, you will need to:

  1. Delete the annotations from the Data Row.

  2. Use the upload_annotations method to re-import annotations. Make sure to use the same uuids. See Python SDK docs.

  3. Load the asset again to see the updated annotations.

When a labeler skips an asset with imported annotations, the annotations will not be saved to the asset. The next time a user loads the asset in the labeling interface, the imported annotations will be loaded on the asset again.


If you label an asset, delete the Label, then keep the Label as a template, that label template will take precedence over any imported annotations for that asset.
