langchain.chains.openai_functions.base.create_structured_output_chain(output_schema: Union[Dict[str, Any], Type[BaseModel]], llm: BaseLanguageModel, prompt: BasePromptTemplate, *, output_key: str = 'function', output_parser: Optional[BaseLLMOutputParser] = None, **kwargs: Any) LLMChain[source]¶

[Deprecated] [Legacy] Create an LLMChain that uses an OpenAI function to get a structured output.

  • output_schema (Union[Dict[str, Any], Type[BaseModel]]) – Either a dictionary or pydantic.BaseModel class. If a dictionary is passed in, it’s assumed to already be a valid JsonSchema. For best results, pydantic.BaseModels should have docstrings describing what the schema represents and descriptions for the parameters.

  • llm (BaseLanguageModel) – Language model to use, assumed to support the OpenAI function-calling API.

  • prompt (BasePromptTemplate) – BasePromptTemplate to pass to the model.

  • output_key (str) – The key to use when returning the output in LLMChain.__call__.

  • output_parser (Optional[BaseLLMOutputParser]) – BaseLLMOutputParser to use for parsing model outputs. By default will be inferred from the function types. If pydantic.BaseModels are passed in, then the OutputParser will try to parse outputs using those. Otherwise model outputs will simply be parsed as JSON.

  • kwargs (Any) –


An LLMChain that will pass the given function to the model.
