Using plug-ins (authenticated or not) with API

I still cannot find a definitive (and recent) answer to this question. Is it possible to use plug-ins with an API? What about plug-ins that require authentication?

Thanks!

You cannot use plugins with the API.

Thanks Jake. Any idea how LangChain does it with their AIPluginTool? If you look at their docs under integrations → Tools there seem to be a bunch of plug-ins they expose.

That’s something altogether different.

You’ll want to ask in a LangChain forum for that.

You can build any integrations you want with OpenAI’s API, but the OpenAI API itself does not support plugins.

I guess they are calling the plug-in directly and then feeding the results into GPT4. Pretty good work around! Any idea if there are plans to add plug-in access to this API?

There are no plugins.

They are just different applications that are part of the chain.

Thanks for your prompt replies Jake!
