Azure OpenAI resource not found

Leabriah Spencer 45 Reputation points


I am trying to follow along the microsoft learn tutorial for "Integrating Azure OpenAI into your app" ( but I cant get the intended result.

When I use an endpoint in the bash terminal (following the tutorial), I get a syntactical error with an arrow under the colon in any given endpoint address i use:

aoai error

Out of curiosity, I copied and pasted my endpoint in the address bar of my browser and it returned a 404 not found message. I tried the same after creating a completely new resource and got the same error message:resource error message

What could I be doing wrong? What can be done about an azure openai endpoint that appears to be expired(?) or in a different file directory(?).

Thank you.

    Hi @Leabriah Spencer

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! Thanks for posting the question.

    If you are using function os.getenv() then you need to pass the environment variables which you have configured in your machine. For example, If have setup environment variables as

    • AZURE_OAI_ENDPOINT with value,
    • AZURE_OAI_KEY with xxxxxxxxxxxxxx and
    • AZURE_OAI_MODEL with value gpt35turbo

    then you need to use the function os.getenv() like below -

    azure_oai_endpoint = os.getenv("AZURE_OAI_ENDPOINT")
    azure_oai_key = os.getenv("AZURE_OAI_KEY")
    azure_oai_model = os.getenv("AZURE_OAI_MODEL")

    Please refer to this document to setup the environment variables.

    Also, if you want to hardcode these values then you need to use assign the values like below -

    azure_oai_endpoint = ""
    azure_oai_key = "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
    azure_oai_model = "gpt35turbo"

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Hi Leabriah,

    For your azure_oai_endpoint and azure_oai_key try putting them in single quotes (') or double quotes ("). The invalid syntax at the beginning of the string indicates where the error is coming from.
