Copilot Studio - General

Citations with Azure AI Search

Posted on by 74


I'm working with Azure AI Search in Copilot and wanting to add citations. I see it returns [Doc1][Doc2], etc. and I can also pass through metadata from sharepoint through into copilot and am planning to do a Substitute to replace the placeholders with the link, using an adaptive card. I'm using a REST API to connect to the Search Index. I'm wondering if there's a built-in way through hooking upt through the generative answer node so I don't have to go through all these hoops. I also need the citation links to work in MS Teams. Thanks for any insight!

    Hey, we currently have been using the following REST API via an HTTP Request node in Copilot Studio with Azure AI Search:

    I likely will setup a Azure AI Studio project to connect an AI Search Index to the generative answers node and integrate the Citations as an Adaptive Card. Here:

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Hi @wswitzer 


    AFAIK, it is not possible to call REST API using Generative AI available in Copilot Studio. 


    You can build a custom connector in Power Platform using this REST API and then use it as a Plugin in Copilot studio.


    Hope it helps..
