Retool AI for self-hosted deployments

Learn about using Retool AI with self-hosted deployments.

Self-hosted customers running Retool 3.14 or later can deploy and embed Retool AI within applications and workflows.

AI platform options

You can configure a direct connection to a supported AI platform by providing an API key. You also have the option to use a Retool-managed OpenAI connection. For production use cases, we recommend you provide an API key and directly connect to an AI platform.

The Retool-managed OpenAI connection is disabled by default. Contact your Retool account representative or our support team to gain access.

Disable Retool AI for your deployment

You can disable Retool AI entirely Beta tab in the Settings page. Retool AI will no longer be available nor can it be enabled by other admins.

Retool Vectors

Retool Vectors for self-hosted deployments is built on Retool Database. To store vector data, you must configure and enable Retool Vectors and Retool Database.

Data sharing and retention

When Retool AI is used to build or configure a query, application, or workflow (e.g., prompting Ask AI to help write queries), the input is shared with the applicable third-party LLM provider, listed in our Subprocessors page. Inputs are deleted within 30 days.

Any inputs or outputs that correspond to the categories above may continue to be used to inform product improvements. Retool does not use any inputs submitted to, or outputs generated from, Retool AI that is embedded within a deployed application or workflow (e.g., text stored in Retool Vectors). These inputs and outputs are treated as "Customer Data" in accordance with the Customer Terms of Service, Security Practices, and Data Processing Addendum.
