In this section, alongside with the OpenAI Model, you can also find some parameters that allows to customize the behaviour of OpenAI. Please refer to OpenAI documentation to learn more. You can find default valuse in the picture below.

OpenAI Parameters


Default value for Max Tokens is deliberately low, in order to prevent high usage when in test phase. Recommended value for useful responses is at aound 400 ~ 500 tokens. Please keep that in mind in order to prevent unwanted costs with OpenAI Api.

OdooGPT Chat Customization

The following settings allow you to customize the OdooGPT integration with OpenAI apis.

You can choose which method to use with OpenAI:

  • Completion api - Always available, with any openai module version
  • ChatCompletion api - Available only with openai>=0.27.0

The mode can be selected into Chat Customization settings → field Chat method: OdooGPT Chat Customization Chat method

Completion api

The parameters under OdooGPT Chat Customization allow to add context to ALL Api requests, in order to let ChatGPT better understand what you're asking.

For example, an input of "How to create a Product?" won't give useful answers. But if you prefix it with "In Odoo: ", the AI can correctly scope the question because you're adding context. Want to be more precise? You could even change it to "In Odoo 16: ".

The same can be done with a suffix, if needed.

ChatCompletion api

With Chat Completion api, you must specify the general context of the messages that will be written by users to OdooBot. This is useful to give instruction to OpenAI and get specific answers. A default value is already provided, look at the image:

Important notice on Models compatible with ChatCompletion api

Depending on your OpenAI account or subscription, some Models might not work with ChatCompletion api. If you get an error like "Oops! Something went wrong! This is not a chat model and thus not supported in the v1/chat/completions endpoint. Did you mean to use v1/completions?", please try changing the model in settings or rollback to Completions api.

Generally, gpt-3.5-turbo works fine with ChatCompletion api, while text-davinci-003 might not be enabled.

Example of generally INVALID configurations:

  • Model text-davinci-003 | Chat method: Chat Completion

Example of generally VALID configurations:

  • Model text-davinci-003 | Chat method: Completion
  • Model gpt-3.5-turbo | Chat method: Completion
  • Model gpt-3.5-turbo | Chat method: Chat Completion
