Controlling the number of generated responses using the n parameter

For certain intelligent applications that you build, you want multiple generated texts from the same prompt. For example, if we’re building an app that generates company slogans, you likely want to generate not just one but also multiple responses so that the user can select the best one. The n parameter controls how many chat completion choices to generate for each input message. It can also control the number of images that are generated when using the Images endpoint.

In this recipe, we will see how the n parameter affects the number of generated responses and understand the different use cases for it.

How to do it…

  1. In Postman, enter the following URL as the endpoint for chat completions: https://api.openai.com/v1/chat/completions.
  2. In the request body, type in the following and click Send. Note that we have added the n parameter and set it to the default value of 1 explicitly:
