Hi @raks.ranjan

Below is the basic template code for gpt 3.5 turbo. Do try this and let us know. If you still face any issues, please feel free to get back to us.

import openai
import os
import sys

openai.api_key = os.environ['OPENAI_API_KEY']
if openai.api_key == "":
  You haven't set up your API key yet.
  If you don't have an API key yet, visit:

  1. Make an account or sign in
  2. Click "View API Keys" from the top right menu.
  3. Click "Create new secret key"

  Then, open the Secrets Tool and add OPENAI_API_KEY as a secret.

response =
        "role": "system",
        "content": "You are a helpful assistant."
    }, {
        "role": "user",
        "content": "Who won the world series in 2020?"
    }, {
        "The Los Angeles Dodgers won the World Series in 2020."
    }, {
        "role": "user",
        "content": "Where was it played?"


The sixth error_description_line says that you are trying to use text-davinci-003, which has been deprecated by OpenAI recently.
To solve the error, replace text-davinci-003 with gpt-3.5-turbo-instruct.

For more information on the “deprecations” thing, you can visit OpenAI Deprecations.

It seems like you’re encountering a 404 error because you’re using a deprecated model named “text-davinci-003”. OpenAI has deprecated this model, and you need to use a different one. You should switch to a supported model instead.

You can find the list of supported models in the OpenAI API documentation. Here’s the link to the documentation: OpenAI API Documentation

Look for the current models available and choose one that suits your needs. Once you’ve chosen a supported model, update your code to use that model instead of “text-davinci-003”, and the error should be resolved.
