Help improve our Azure docs!

On a weekly basis, more than 5 million people find help using Microsoft online help and documentation. Despite having more than 380,000 pages of articles, references, and tutorials, we each have our own stories of painful gaps.

Today, we’re introducing a new project to help, code-named Aladdin.

What is Aladdin?

Aladdin is an AI assistant that connects you to relevant Azure documentation and helps you accomplish your work more efficiently. Just like any assistant, the more you work with Aladdin, the better it’ll be able to work for you. And as Aladdin helps you, it will be helping us identify gaps and areas for improvement in our docs and products.

After installing the Aladdin extension, “Related Questions” prompts will appear on Microsoft Docs article pages:

Each prompt recommends contextually-relevant articles:

Install Aladdin

Install the Aladdin extension for your Chrome browser. Aladdin will now be there to assist you on Azure documentation pages. Edge support is coming soon!

How does it work?

Aladdin builds a knowledge base from Azure documentation, customer comments, and visitor telemetry. Using this knowledge base, along with Azure Cognitive Services, Aladdin connects you to relevant resources and helps you get your job done faster.

What data do you collect?

The extensions only functions on Microsoft Docs and collects telemetry on pages that Aladdin is visible. The collected telemetry includes the visited pages along with any interactions you have with Aladdin.
