Quickstart: Chat with Azure OpenAI models using your own data

Reference | Source code | Package (pypi) | Samples

The links above reference the OpenAI API for Python. There is no Azure-specific OpenAI Python SDK. Learn how to switch between the OpenAI services and Azure OpenAI services.

In this quickstart you can use your own data with Azure OpenAI models. Using Azure OpenAI's models on your data can provide you with a powerful conversational AI platform that enables faster and more accurate communication.

Prerequisites

Add your data using Azure OpenAI Studio

Tip

You can use the Azure Developer CLI to programmatically create the resources needed for Azure OpenAI On Your Data

Navigate to Azure OpenAI Studio and sign-in with credentials that have access to your Azure OpenAI resource. During or after the sign-in workflow, select the appropriate directory, Azure subscription, and Azure OpenAI resource.

  1. Select the Bring your own data tile

    A screenshot of the Azure OpenAI Studio landing page.

  2. In the pane that appears, select Upload files (preview) under Select data source. Azure OpenAI needs both a storage resource and a search resource to access and index your data.

    Tip

    1. For Azure OpenAI to access your storage account, you will need to turn on Cross-origin resource sharing (CORS). If CORS isn't already turned on for the Azure Blob Storage resource, select Turn on CORS.

    2. Select your Azure AI Search resource, and select the acknowledgment that connecting it will incur usage on your account. Then select Next.

    A screenshot showing options for selecting a data source in Azure OpenAI Studio.

  3. On the Upload files pane, select Browse for a file and select the files you downloaded from the prerequisites section, or your own data. Then select Upload files. Then select Next.

  4. On the Data management pane, you can choose whether to enable semantic search or vector search for your index.

    Important

    • Semantic search and vector search are subject to additional pricing. You need to choose Basic or higher SKU to enable semantic search or vector search. See pricing tier difference and service limits for more information.
    • To help improve the quality of the information retrieval and model response, we recommend enabling semantic search for the following data source languages: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Germany, Chinese(Zh), Japanese, Korean, Russian, and Arabic.
  5. Review the details you entered, and select Save and close. You can now chat with the model and it will use information from your data to construct the response.

Chat playground

Start exploring Azure OpenAI capabilities with a no-code approach through the chat playground. It's simply a text box where you can submit a prompt to generate a completion. From this page, you can quickly iterate and experiment with the capabilities.

Screenshot of the playground page of the Azure OpenAI Studio with sections highlighted.

The playground gives you options to tailor your chat experience. On the right, you can select Deployment to determine which model generates a response using the search results from your index. You choose the number of past messages to include as conversation history for future generated responses. Conversation history gives context to generate related responses but also consumes token usage. The input token progress indicator keeps track of the token count of the question you submit.

The Advanced settings on the left are runtime parameters, which give you control over retrieval and search relevant information from your data. A good use case is when you want to make sure responses are generated only based on your data or you find the model cannot generate a response based on existed information on your data.

  • Strictness determines the system's aggressiveness in filtering search documents based on their similarity scores. Setting strictness to 5 indicates that the system will aggressively filter out documents, applying a very high similarity threshold. Semantic search can be helpful in this scenario because the ranking models do a better job of inferring the intent of the query. Lower levels of strictness produce more verbose answers, but might also include information that isn't in your index. This is set to 3 by default.

  • Retrieved documents is an integer that can be set to 3, 5, 10, or 20, and controls the number of document chunks provided to the large language model for formulating the final response. By default, this is set to 5.

  • When Limit responses to your data is enabled, the model attempts to only rely on your documents for responses. This is set to true by default.

Screenshot of the advanced settings.

Send your first query. The chat models perform best in question and answer exercises. For example, "What are my available health plans?" or "What is the health plus option?".

Queries that require data analysis would probably fail, such as "Which health plan is most popular?". Queries that require information about all of your data will also likely fail, such as "How many documents have I uploaded?". Remember that the search engine looks for chunks having exact or similar terms, phrases, or construction to the query. And while the model might understand the question, if search results are chunks from the data set, it's not the right information to answer that kind of question.

Chats are constrained by the number of documents (chunks) returned in the response (limited to 3-20 in Azure OpenAI Studio playground). As you can imagine, posing a question about "all of the titles" requires a full scan of the entire vector store.

Deploy your model

Once you're satisfied with the experience in Azure OpenAI studio, you can deploy a web app directly from the Studio by selecting the Deploy to button.

A screenshot showing the model deployment button in Azure OpenAI Studio.

This gives you the option to either deploy to a standalone web application, or a copilot in Copilot Studio (preview) if you're using your own data on the model.

As an example, if you choose to deploy a web app:

The first time you deploy a web app, you should select Create a new web app. Choose a name for the app, which will become part of the app URL. For example, https://<appname>.azurewebsites.net.

Select your subscription, resource group, location, and pricing plan for the published app. To update an existing app, select Publish to an existing web app and choose the name of your previous app from the dropdown menu.

If you choose to deploy a web app, see the important considerations for using it.

Retrieve required variables

To successfully make a call against Azure OpenAI, you need the following variables. This quickstart assumes you've uploaded your data to an Azure blob storage account and have an Azure AI Search index created. See Add your data using Azure AI studio

Variable name Value
AZURE_OPENAI_ENDPOINT This value can be found in the Keys & Endpoint section when examining your Azure OpenAI resource from the Azure portal. Alternatively, you can find the value in Azure AI studio > Chat playground > Code view. An example endpoint is: https://my-resoruce.openai.azure.com.
AZURE_OPENAI_API_KEY This value can be found in Resource management > Keys & Endpoint section when examining your Azure OpenAI resource from the Azure portal. You can use either KEY1 or KEY2. Always having two keys allows you to securely rotate and regenerate keys without causing a service disruption.
AZURE_OPENAI_DEPLOYMENT_ID This value corresponds to the custom name you chose for your deployment when you deployed a model. This value can be found under Resource Management > Deployments in the Azure portal or alternatively under Management > Deployments in Azure AI studio.
AZURE_AI_SEARCH_ENDPOINT This value can be found in the Overview section when examining your Azure AI Search resource from the Azure portal.
AZURE_AI_SEARCH_API_KEY This value can be found in the Settings > Keys section when examining your Azure AI Search resource from the Azure portal. You can use either the primary admin key or secondary admin key. Always having two keys allows you to securely rotate and regenerate keys without causing a service disruption.
AZURE_AI_SEARCH_INDEX This value corresponds to the name of the index you created to store your data. You can find it in the Overview section when examining your Azure AI Search resource from the Azure portal.

Create a new .NET Core application

In a console window (such as cmd, PowerShell, or Bash), use the dotnet new command to create a new console app with the name azure-openai-quickstart. This command creates a simple "Hello World" project with a single C# source file: Program.cs.

dotnet new console -n azure-openai-quickstart

Change your directory to the newly created app folder. You can build the application with:

dotnet build

The build output should contain no warnings or errors.

...
Build succeeded.
 0 Warning(s)
 0 Error(s)
...

Install the OpenAI .NET client library with:

dotnet add package Azure.AI.OpenAI --prerelease

From the project directory, open the Program.cs file and replace its contents with the following code:

Without response streaming

using Azure;
using Azure.AI.OpenAI;
using System.Text.Json;
using static System.Environment;

string azureOpenAIEndpoint = GetEnvironmentVariable("AZURE_OPENAI_ENDPOINT");
string azureOpenAIKey = GetEnvironmentVariable("AZURE_OPENAI_API_KEY");
string deploymentName = GetEnvironmentVariable("AZURE_OPENAI_DEPLOYMENT_ID");
string searchEndpoint = GetEnvironmentVariable("AZURE_AI_SEARCH_ENDPOINT");
string searchKey = GetEnvironmentVariable("AZURE_AI_SEARCH_API_KEY");
string searchIndex = GetEnvironmentVariable("AZURE_AI_SEARCH_INDEX");


var client = new OpenAIClient(new Uri(azureOpenAIEndpoint), new AzureKeyCredential(azureOpenAIKey));

var chatCompletionsOptions = new ChatCompletionsOptions()
{
    Messages =
    {
        new ChatRequestUserMessage("What are my available health plans?"),
    },
    AzureExtensionsOptions = new AzureChatExtensionsOptions()
    {
        Extensions =
        {
            new AzureCognitiveSearchChatExtensionConfiguration()
            {
                SearchEndpoint = new Uri(searchEndpoint),
                Key = searchKey,
                IndexName = searchIndex,
            },
        }
    },
    DeploymentName = deploymentName
};

Response<ChatCompletions> response = client.GetChatCompletions(chatCompletionsOptions);

ChatResponseMessage responseMessage = response.Value.Choices[0].Message;

Console.WriteLine($"Message from {responseMessage.Role}:");
Console.WriteLine("===");
Console.WriteLine(responseMessage.Content);
Console.WriteLine("===");

Console.WriteLine($"Context information (e.g. citations) from chat extensions:");
Console.WriteLine("===");
foreach (ChatResponseMessage contextMessage in responseMessage.AzureExtensionsContext.Messages)
{
    string contextContent = contextMessage.Content;
    try
    {
        var contextMessageJson = JsonDocument.Parse(contextMessage.Content);
        contextContent = JsonSerializer.Serialize(contextMessageJson, new JsonSerializerOptions()
        {
            WriteIndented = true,
        });
    }
    catch (JsonException)
    {}
    Console.WriteLine($"{contextMessage.Role}: {contextContent}");
}
Console.WriteLine("===");

Important

For production, use a secure way of storing and accessing your credentials like Azure Key Vault. For more information about credential security, see the Azure AI services security article.

dotnet run program.cs

Output

Answer from assistant:
===
The available health plans in the Contoso Electronics plan and benefit packages are the Northwind Health Plus and Northwind Standard plans [^1^].
===
Context information (e.g. citations) from chat extensions:
===
tool: {
  "citations": [
    {
      "content": "...",
      "id": null,
      "title": "...",
      "filepath": "...",
      "url": "...",
      "metadata": {
        "chunking": "orignal document size=1011. Scores=3.6390076 and None.Org Highlight count=38."
      },
      "chunk_id": "2"
    },
    ...
  ],
  "intent": "[\u0022What are my available health plans?\u0022]"
}
===

This will wait until the model has generated its entire response before printing the results. Alternatively, if you want to asynchronously stream the response and print the results, you can replace the contents of Program.cs with the code in the next example.

Async with streaming

using Azure;
using Azure.AI.OpenAI;
using System.Text.Json;
using static System.Environment;

string azureOpenAIEndpoint = GetEnvironmentVariable("AZURE_OPENAI_ENDPOINT");
string azureOpenAIKey = GetEnvironmentVariable("AZURE_OPENAI_API_KEY");
string deploymentName = GetEnvironmentVariable("AZURE_OPENAI_DEPLOYMENT_ID");
string searchEndpoint = GetEnvironmentVariable("AZURE_AI_SEARCH_ENDPOINT");
string searchKey = GetEnvironmentVariable("AZURE_AI_SEARCH_API_KEY");
string searchIndex = GetEnvironmentVariable("AZURE_AI_SEARCH_INDEX");


var client = new OpenAIClient(new Uri(azureOpenAIEndpoint), new AzureKeyCredential(azureOpenAIKey));

var chatCompletionsOptions = new ChatCompletionsOptions()
{
    DeploymentName = deploymentName,
    Messages =

            new AzureCognitiveSearchChatExtensionConfiguration()
            {
                SearchEndpoint = new Uri(searchEndpoint),
                Key = searchKey,
                IndexName = searchIndex,
            },
        }
    }
};
await foreach (StreamingChatCompletionsUpdate chatUpdate in client.GetChatCompletionsStreaming(chatCompletionsOptions))
{
    if (chatUpdate.Role.HasValue)
    {
        Console.Write($"{chatUpdate.Role.Value.ToString().ToUpperInvariant()}: ");
    }
    if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(chatUpdate.ContentUpdate))
    {
        Console.Write(chatUpdate.ContentUpdate);
    }
}

Note

Spring AI defaults the model name to gpt-35-turbo. It's only necessary to provide the SPRING_AI_AZURE_OPENAI_MODEL value if you've deployed a model with a different name.

export SPRING_AI_AZURE_OPENAI_ENDPOINT=REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_AOAI_ENDPOINT_VALUE_HERE
export SPRING_AI_AZURE_OPENAI_API_KEY=REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_AOAI_KEY_VALUE_HERE

export SPRING_AI_AZURE_OPENAI_MODEL=REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_MODEL_NAME_HERE

Create a new Spring application

Spring AI doesn't currently support the AzureCognitiveSearchChatExtensionConfiguration options that allow an Azure AI query to encapsulate the Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) method and hide the details from the user. As an alternative, you can still invoke the RAG method directly in your application to query data in your Azure AI Search index and use retrieved documents to augment your query.

Spring AI supports a VectorStore abstraction, and you can wrap Azure AI Search can be wrapped in a Spring AI VectorStore implementation for querying your custom data. The following project implements a custom VectorStore backed by Azure AI Search and directly executes RAG operations.

In a Bash window, create a new directory for your app, and navigate to it.

mkdir ai-custom-data-demo && cd ai-custom-data-demo

Run the spring init command from your working directory. This command creates a standard directory structure for your Spring project including the main Java class source file and the pom.xml file used for managing Maven based projects.

spring init -a ai-custom-data-demo -n AICustomData --force --build maven -x

The generated files and folders resemble the following structure:

ai-custom-data-demo/
|-- pom.xml
|-- mvn
|-- mvn.cmd
|-- HELP.md
|-- src/
    |-- main/
    |   |-- resources/
    |   |   |-- application.properties
    |   |-- java/
    |       |-- com/
    |           |-- example/
    |               |-- aicustomdatademo/
    |                   |-- AiCustomDataApplication.java
    |-- test/
        |-- java/
            |-- com/
                |-- example/
                    |-- aicustomdatademo/
                        |-- AiCustomDataApplicationTests.java

Example PowerShell commands

The Azure OpenAI chat models are optimized to work with inputs formatted as a conversation. The messages variable passes an array of dictionaries with different roles in the conversation delineated by system, user, tool, and assistant. The dataSources variable connects to your Azure Cognitive Search index, and enables Azure OpenAI models to respond using your data.

To trigger a response from the model, you should end with a user message indicating that it's the assistant's turn to respond.

Tip

There are several parameters you can use to change the model's response, such as temperature or top_p. See the reference documentation for more information.

Chat with your model using a web app

To start chatting with the Azure OpenAI model that uses your data, you can deploy a web app using Azure OpenAI studio or example code we provide on GitHub. This app deploys using Azure app service, and provides a user interface for sending queries. This app can be used Azure OpenAI models that use your data, or models that don't use your data. See the readme file in the repo for instructions on requirements, setup, and deployment. You can optionally customize the frontend and backend logic of the web app by making changes to the source code.

    Important

    For production, use a secure way of storing and accessing your credentials like Azure Key Vault. For more information about credential security, see the Azure AI services security article.

  2. Execute the following command:

    go run sample.go
    

    The application prints the response including both answers to your query and citations from your uploaded files.

Retrieve required variables

To successfully make a call against Azure OpenAI, you need the following variables. This quickstart assumes you've uploaded your data to an Azure blob storage account and have an Azure AI Search index created. See Add your data using Azure AI studio

Variable name Value
AZURE_OPENAI_ENDPOINT This value can be found in the Keys & Endpoint section when examining your Azure OpenAI resource from the Azure portal. Alternatively, you can find the value in Azure AI studio > Chat playground > Code view. An example endpoint is: https://my-resoruce.openai.azure.com.
AZURE_OPENAI_API_KEY This value can be found in Resource management > Keys & Endpoint section when examining your Azure OpenAI resource from the Azure portal. You can use either KEY1 or KEY2. Always having two keys allows you to securely rotate and regenerate keys without causing a service disruption.
AZURE_OPENAI_DEPLOYMENT_ID This value corresponds to the custom name you chose for your deployment when you deployed a model. This value can be found under Resource Management > Deployments in the Azure portal or alternatively under Management > Deployments in Azure AI studio.
AZURE_AI_SEARCH_ENDPOINT This value can be found in the Overview section when examining your Azure AI Search resource from the Azure portal.
AZURE_AI_SEARCH_API_KEY This value can be found in the Settings > Keys section when examining your Azure AI Search resource from the Azure portal. You can use either the primary admin key or secondary admin key. Always having two keys allows you to securely rotate and regenerate keys without causing a service disruption.
AZURE_AI_SEARCH_INDEX This value corresponds to the name of the index you created to store your data. You can find it in the Overview section when examining your Azure AI Search resource from the Azure portal.

Environment variables

setx AZURE_OPENAI_ENDPOINT REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_AOAI_ENDPOINT_VALUE_HERE
setx AZURE_OPENAI_API_KEY REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_AOAI_KEY_VALUE_HERE
setx AZURE_OPENAI_DEPLOYMENT_ID REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_AOAI_DEPLOYMENT_VALUE_HERE
setx AZURE_AI_SEARCH_ENDPOINT REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_AZURE_SEARCH_RESOURCE_VALUE_HERE
setx AZURE_AI_SEARCH_API_KEY REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_AZURE_SEARCH_RESOURCE_KEY_VALUE_HERE
setx AZURE_AI_SEARCH_INDEX REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_INDEX_NAME_HERE

Example cURL commands

The Azure OpenAI chat models are optimized to work with inputs formatted as a conversation. The messages variable passes an array of dictionaries with different roles in the conversation delineated by system, user, tool, and assistant. The dataSources variable connects to your Azure AI Search index, and enables Azure OpenAI models to respond using your data.

To trigger a response from the model, you should end with a user message indicating that it's the assistant's turn to respond.

Tip

There are several parameters you can use to change the model's response, such as temperature or top_p. See the reference documentation for more information.

Chat with your model using a web app

To start chatting with the Azure OpenAI model that uses your data, you can deploy a web app using Azure OpenAI studio or example code we provide on GitHub. This app deploys using Azure app service, and provides a user interface for sending queries. This app can be used Azure OpenAI models that use your data, or models that don't use your data. See the readme file in the repo for instructions on requirements, setup, and deployment. You can optionally customize the frontend and backend logic of the web app by making changes to the source code.

Clean up resources

If you want to clean up and remove an Azure OpenAI or Azure AI Search resource, you can delete the resource or resource group. Deleting the resource group also deletes any other resources associated with it.
