Cloud Accounts

This section contains information regarding accounts on the Wolfram Cloud.

Excel users who want to use public Wolfram APIs do not need a cloud account. To use Wolfram APIs that are not public, you need to be signed into a cloud account. The owner of a Wolfram API will tell if it is public or not. In addition, any user who wishes to call the Wolfram function needs to be signed into a cloud account.

Developers must have a cloud account, as they are needed to create and deploy Wolfram APIs.

Creating a Cloud Account

To create a cloud account, you must go to the URL of the Wolfram Cloud you wish to use and click the Sign In button. The sign-in page contains a link that allows you to create an account.

Cloud Credits Usage (Wolfram Public Cloud)

Computations on a Wolfram Public Cloud require cloud credits in order to execute. When the Wolfram function is called, the cloud credits of the signed-in user are consumed. When the WolframAPI function is called, the cloud credits from the developer who published the API are consumed.

If an account has used up its allocation of cloud credits, it is possible to upgrade the account or to purchase additional credits.

Cloud Account Names (Developers)

There are three ways that uniquely identify a cloud account. One of these values is required when using the WolframAPI function. See Calling Wolfram APIs > API Name for more details.

Cloud ID

This is the email address used to create the cloud account. If you are authenticated into the Wolfram Cloud, you can run the following to get the value:

In[21]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[21]=

User UUID

This is the UUID of the cloud account. If you are authenticated into the Wolfram Cloud, you can run the following to get the value:

In[22]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[22]=

User URL Base

This is a customizable name that a cloud account has. If you are authenticated into the Wolfram Cloud, you can run the following to get the value:

In[23]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[23]=

Changing the User URL Base from the Wolfram Cloud

The User URL Base is an identifier of a cloud account that can be changed. This value can only be changed if you are a paid customer of the Wolfram Public Cloud or using an Enterprise Private Cloud.

The User URL Base is typically the prefix of the email used when registering a cloud account. For example, if the email address registered was myaccount@wolfram.com, the User URL Base would likely be myaccount. The default value can be viewed and changed by logging into the cloud account through a web browser, clicking the person icon and selecting Preferences. In the General tab, you will find URL Base, which can be changed to any available value.
