Fine tuning - REST request HTTP 400 with model attached

Hi all,

I’m at the final stages of the process, but can’t get the final completions request to work. When properly authenticated, when I make a request to that looks like this:

{“prompt”:“Valid Text some stuff”,“stream”:false,“model”:“ft-14ueCfFQ68Zl8FDeeYgq9gco”}

I get:
StatusCode: 400, ReasonPhrase: ‘Bad Request’, Version: 1.1

If I take out “model” in the request it works fine. I can see the model in my list of models and it looks fine, and works in the playground.

Any ideas?
Thank you!

Hey Kevin,

Looks like your model parameter is referring to the ID of a fine-tuning run (ft-XXXXX), rather than the name of a fine-tuned model. If you used the command line interface to fine-tune the model, it should print out the model name at the end of it (ada:XXXXX, babbage:XXXXX, or curie:XXXXX). Feel free to email if you can’t find it.


Thank you so much, Rachel!

You may consider updating a few places…this was ambiguous, at least to me:

-d '{"prompt": YOUR_PROMPT, "model": FINE_TUNED_MODEL}'

I love this tip - lol 6 months and I didn’t know that existed. Thank you for everything :wink:

I thought I had this, but there is something different with these endpoints, or I am going insane :wink: Both are possibilities :wink:

A POST to here:

Of this:

{“prompt”:“Text: Lorem ipsum lots of it blah blah\n\n “,“max_tokens”:100,“temperature”:0.75,“top_p”:1.0,“presence_penalty”:0.5,“frequency_penalty”:0.5,“n”:1,“stream”:false,“logprobs”:1,“stop”:”\n\n”}

Works fine.

A POST to here:
Of the same thing, results in an HTTP 400

{“prompt”:“Text:Lorem ipsum lots of it blah blah\n\n “,“max_tokens”:100,“temperature”:0.75,“top_p”:1.0,“presence_penalty”:0.5,“frequency_penalty”:0.5,“n”:1,“stream”:false,“logprobs”:1,“stop”:”\n\n”}

Thank you for the kind words and support along the way. I must confess I’m at a bit of a loss on what to try next. This doesn’t work for me:

{“prompt”:“Test test hello yo\n\n “,“max_tokens”:100,“temperature”:0.75,“top_p”:1.0,“presence_penalty”:0.5,“frequency_penalty”:0.5,“n”:1,“stream”:false,“logprobs”:1,“stop”:”\n\n”,“model”:“curie:ft-user-mmuxbljf5hokaxayweacscpj-2021-07-30-06-40-45”}

If I remove “model” and try the old endpoint, it works fine.

What error message are you getting? Does the model work for you on the playground?

Rachel, you can find a detailed description of the problem and repro steps here:
