Understanding indicator strings

When I used the cli tool to format my data, part of the output was reminding me that “your prompt has to end with the indicator string ] for the model to start generating completions, rather than continuing with the prompt.”

Does this mean that in python, in my call to result= openai.Completion.create, I should include a ‘]’ at the end of my prompt parameter? So for example, instead of saying

result= openai.Completion.create(
prompt=“How do I do a thing?”)

I should instead put
prompt=“How do I do a thing?]”)
