I want the assistant to access a few links besides uploaded documents and instructions. How can I do this so that when a user query my assistant it also looks thru data on those pages.
Write a function that accesses the links, and specify in the Assistant and function’s description that the Assistant should look there for data as well.
The assistant doesn’t have a retrieval feature with access to the internet, it only has document retrieval.
If you want to add search or simpler link fetching to it, as @sdelgado says, you need to write a function “tool” that the assistant can call, doing the search for the assistant and returning the results to it.
