Create Open AI Assistants

The Assistants API allows you to build AI assistants within your own instructions, models, and knowledge to respond to user queries. 

The Assistants API is in beta and the Open AI team is actively working on adding more functionality. 

To use it in the Helper plugin you need to first create it in Open AI.

Step 1

Go to your Open AI account and press Create

Create a new assistant
step 2

Fill in all necessary fields.

You need to select the tool File search to use your content for the assistant’s answers and add files with your information.

  • Name – enter the name of the new assistant.
  • Instructions – describe how the Assistant and model should behave or respond.
  • Model – select the model applicable to the File search tool: gpt-3.5-turbo, gpt-3.5-turbo-1106, gpt-3.5-turbo-0125 or gpt-4 models.
  • Tools – select File search, it enables the assistant with knowledge from files that you upload. Once a file is uploaded, the assistant automatically decides when to retrieve content based on user requests. Read more about the pricing of this tool.
  • File – upload a file that can be used as the assistant content. The maximum file size is 512 MB. Each file should contain no more than 5,000,000 tokens per file (computed automatically when you attach a file). File Search supports a variety of file formats including, and .docx. More details on the file extensions (and their corresponding MIME-types) supported can be found in the Supported files section below.
