The Apify OpenAI Vector Store integration allows dynamic updates to the OpenAI Assistant files.

OpenAI Vector Store Integration (OpenAI Assistant)

License Build & Unit Tests

The Apify OpenAI Vector Store integration allows dynamic updates to the OpenAI Assistant files. It assumes that you have already created an OpenAI Assistant and OpenAI Vector Store and you need to regularly update the files to provide up-to-date responses.

💡 Note: This Actor is meant to be used together with other Actors' integration sections. For instance, if you are using the Website Content Crawler, you can activate Vector Store Files integration to save web content (including docx, pptx, pdf and other files) for your OpenAI assistant.

How does OpenAI Assistant Integration work?

Data for the Vector Store and Assistant are provided by various Apify actors and includes web content, Docx, Pdf, Pptx, and other files.

The integration process includes:

  • Loading data from an Apify Actor
  • Processing the data to comply with OpenAI Assistant limits (max. 1000 files, max 5,000,000 tokens)
  • Creating OpenAI files OpenAI Files
  • [Optional] Removing existing files from the Vector Store (specified by fileIdsToDelete and/or filePrefix)
  • Adding the newly created files to the vector store.
  • [Optional] Deleting existing files from the OpenAI files (specified by fileIdsToDelete and/or filePrefix)

Before you start

To utilize this integration, ensure you have:


Refer to input schema for details.

  • vectorStoreId - OpenAI Vector Store ID
  • openaiApiKey - OpenAI API key
  • assistantId: The ID of an OpenAI Assistant. This parameter is required only when a file exceeds the OpenAI size limit of 5,000,000 tokens (as of 2024-04-23). When necessary, the model associated with the assistant is utilized to count tokens and split the large file into smaller, manageable segments.
  • datasetFields - Array of datasetFields you want to save, e.g., ["url", "text", "metadata.title"].
  • fileIdsToDelete - Delete specified file IDs from vector store as needed.
  • filePrefix - Delete and create files using a filePrefix, streamlining vector store updates.
  • datasetId: [Debug] Dataset ID (when running Actor as standalone without integration).
  • keyValueStoreId: [Debug] Key Value Store ID (when running Actor as standalone without integration).
  • saveInApifyKeyValueStore: [Debug] Save all created files in the Apify Key-Value Store to easily check and retrieve all files (this is typically used when debugging)


This integration saves selected datasetFields from your Actor to the OpenAI Assistant and optionally to Actor Key Value Storage (useful for debugging).
