A Practical Guide for Beginners: Azure OpenAI with JavaScript and TypeScript is an essential starting point for exploring Artificial Intelligence in the Azure cloud. This guide will be divided into 3 parts, covering: ‘How to create the Azure OpenAI Service resource,’ How to implement the model created in Azure OpenAI Studio, and finally, how to consume this resource in a Node.js/TypeScript application. This series will help you learn the fundamentals so that you can start developing your applications with Azure OpenAI Service. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced developer, discover how to create intelligent applications and unlock the potential of AI with ease.

Responsible AI


Before we start discussing Azure OpenAI Service, it’s crucial to talk about Microsoft’s strong commitment to the entire field of Artificial Intelligence. Microsoft is deeply dedicated to this topic. Therefore, Microsoft is committed to ensuring that AI is used in a responsible and ethical manner. Furthermore, Microsoft is working with the AI community to develop and share best practices and tools to help ensure that AI is used in a responsible and ethical way, thereby incorporating the six core principles, which are:

  • Fairness

  • Inclusivity

  • Reliability and Safety

  • Transparency

  • Security and Privacy

  • Accountability

Understand Azure OpenAI Service


Azure OpenAI Service provides access to advanced OpenAI language models such as GPT-4, GPT-3.5-Turbo, and Embeddings via a REST API. The GPT-4 and GPT-3.5-Turbo models are now available for general use, allowing adaptation for tasks such as content generation, summarization, semantic search, and natural language translation to code. Users can access the service through REST APIs, Python SDK, or Azure OpenAI Studio.

To learn more about the models available in Azure OpenAI Service, you can access them through the link Azure OpenAI Service models.


Create the Azure OpenAI Service Resource


The use of Azure OpenAI Service is limited. Therefore, it is necessary to request access to the service at Azure OpenAI Service. Once you have approval, you can start using and testing the service!

Once your access is approved, go to the Azure Portal and let’s create the Azure OpenAI resource. To do this, follow the steps below:


  • Step 01: Click on the Create a resource button.




  • Step 02: In the search box, type Azure OpenAI and then click Create.







  • Step 03: On the resource creation screen, fill in the fields as follows:




Note that in the Pricing tier field, you can test Azure OpenAI Service for free but with some limitations. To access all features, you should choose a paid plan. For more pricing information, access the link Azure OpenAI Service pricing.

  • Step 04: Under the Network tab, choose the option: All networks, including the internet, can access this resource. and then click Next.

  • Step 05: After completing all the steps, click the Create button to create the resource.




  • Step 06: Wait a few minutes for the resource to be created.




Next steps


In the next article, we will learn how to deploy a model on the Azure OpenAI Service. This model will allow us to consume the Azure OpenAI Service directly in our code.
