i have a file id of a file generated by the assistant api’s code interpreter, how can i view the file

To view a file generated by the assistant API’s code interpreter, you can use the pd download command in the Pipedream CLI. You’ll need the file ID to do this. Here’s an example: bash pd download <FILE_ID> Replace <FILE_ID> with your actual file ID. This will download the file to your current directory. Please note that you need to have the Pipedream CLI installed and configured on your machine to use this command. You can find more information on how to do this in the Pipedream CLI documentation: CLI Reference.

pd download isn’t a thing

I apologize for the confusion earlier. You’re correct, there’s no pd download command in Pipedream’s CLI. To view a file generated by the assistant API’s code interpreter, you would typically need to use the API or service that generated the file. In Pipedream, if the file is an output of a workflow, you can view it in the Inspector associated with that workflow. If you could provide more details about the context in which the file was generated, I might be able to give a more specific answer. For example, was the file generated as a result of a workflow run, or from a specific API call?

he’s talking about downloading a file from the OpenAI Assistants API by file id

To download a file from the OpenAI Assistants API by file ID, you would typically use the OpenAI API’s file download endpoint. However, as of my training data, OpenAI has not publicly documented a specific endpoint for downloading files by ID. The usual process involves making a GET request to the file’s URL or using the file ID in an API endpoint that supports it. The specifics can vary depending on the API’s design. If you have more details about the OpenAI Assistants API’s file handling process or if there’s a specific method in the OpenAI Assistants API documentation for this, I could provide a more accurate answer.

I haven’t reindexed Pi’s sources since we shipped the assistant actions but I’ll do that. You should be able to use

Let me know if that works

hi Dylan, it doesnt work for images. I have since found another way to do it but that involves using the Python SDK for openAI
