Kind Request: Keeping 'gpt-4-1106-preview' Model Name Beyond Preview Period?

Hello, team. I’m unsure if the OpenAI staff will read this article, but just in case, could you please maintain the model name as ‘gpt-4-1106-preview’ even after the preview period ends?

The reason I ask is that the model name is partly integrated into our backend, and we rely on it. If the model suddenly disappears, it will impact our backend operations significantly.

Thank you. :slight_smile:

Hopefully, when it changes, they will temporarily point the name to the latest name, and give us all some time to change names in our code.


I don’t think they are going to keep it as gpt-4-1106-preview after the preview ends. I would recommend preparing for the change so your service doesn’t go down when it does eventually get removed from preview.

You should probably have a config file where you set what model you want to use, then can update when needed.
