What is GitBook?

GitBook is a knowledge sharing platform that’s inspired by the way that developers organize their work. With simple import tools, an intuitive interface, and a powerful change request workflow, GitBook has everything you need to document your work — from start to ship. Whether it’s public docs, an internal knowledge base, or something else entirely.

How much does Lens cost?

While GitBook Lens is in alpha, anyone can activate Lens for their public documentation and internal knowledge base today at no extra cost.

When Lens moves into beta, we plan to make it part of the Pro and Enterprise plans. We’ll be in touch to tell you about that before it happens, though.

We’ll also be keeping a close eye on usage data, because the more requests we get the more it costs us. We don’t currently plan to add extra charges for Lens, but if that changes in future we’ll let you know in advance.

How do I activate GitBook Lens?

To activate Lens, head into your Organization Settings and hit the toggle. You can also activate Lens for individual spaces within your organization by opening the space and hitting Customize.

How does Lens generate a response to my question?

GitBook Lens constantly indexes your documentation using OpenAI. When you ask a Lens a question, it finds and combines information from within that documentation to provide an answer. It doesn’t use content from anywhere else to form its answers.

How does GitBook Lens handle my data?

We use the OpenAI API to pass your content to OpenAI to index and process data. OpenAI does not use this content for service improvements (including model training). You can find out more about how OpenAI handles data here.

Does GitBook Lens use ChatGPT?

While we do use the GPT model at one point in the process — to make the answers to your query clear and readable — Lens doesn’t use ChatGPT specifically. ChatGPT indexes content from the internet, while Lens will only index and answer using information within your own content.

How do I embed the GitBook Lens API into my product?

You can embed GitBook Lens using the GitBook API. We have an endpoint dedicated to handling all of your AI search requests. Find more about the GitBook API and Integration Platform at
