API Key Trouble

I am getting the following error:

message: ‘Incorrect API key provided: “sk-e4IG******************************************gQ”;. You can find your API key at https://beta.openai.com.’,
type: ‘invalid_request_error’,
param: null,
code: ‘invalid_api_key’

The key I have is good. The playground works, and I am even able to build finetunes. I was working with this key for hours training a chatbot. Then I took break for a couple of hours and when I came back, nothing was working.

I have tried creating a new key, but it doesn’t help. Any advice?

  • flush cache, shut down the IDE, and try again.
  • Check if the API key is inserted properly via .env vars
  • Check your code flow using debug feature

I’m going to reboot everything and see what happens. But I want to point out that the apikey in that error message is coming from the openai endpoint., and it appears to by my key (asterisks not withstanding.) They key is definitely getting to the server. aaaaaand… no dice :frowning: Still not working.

Gah. See that semicolon after the key? It doesn’t belong there. It’s working again.
