Search RAG library files for a given query and return snippets that seem to be about the topic specified. This endpoint does not try to answer the question, only to find relevant snippets. If you want a question answering endpoint, use Contextual Answers [RAG Engine].

If you specify different filter parameters such as path, labels, or fileIds, only files that match ALL of the filters will be searched. So specifying path=pets/ and labels=feeding will only search files with both of those attributes. Specifying multiple labels or file IDs will search files with any matching values.

Example

from ai21 import AI21Client

# Depend on API key being set in os.environment["AI21_API_KEY"]
client = AI21Client()
def search_library_file():
    response = client.library.search.create(
        query="How many days can I work from home?",
        labels=["hr"]
    )
    print(response.to_json())
import requests
ROOT_URL = "https://api.ai21.com/studio/v1/"

def search_library_files():
