Looking up Watson Machine Learning service instance credentials

Service credentials are what apps and tools (such as the IBM Cloud command line) use to authenticate with a service instance. To configure apps and tools to work with your IBM Watson Machine Learning service instance, first you need to look up credentials for that service instance.

 

There are different ways to look up Watson Machine Learning service credentials, depending on where you start:

  • IBM Watson Studio Cloud
  • IBM Cloud
  • IBM Watson Studio Local

 

Option 1: From Watson Studio Cloud

  1. From the Services menu in Watson Studio, open Watson Services in a new browser tab. (This opens the Watson Services page in Watson Studio.)
  2. In the Machine Learning section, click the service instance for which you want to retrieve credentials. (This opens the service details page in IBM Cloud for the Watson Machine Learning service instance.)
  3. Click Service credentials.
  4. If there are no service credentials yet, click the New credential button.
  5. Under the ACTION menu, click "View credentials".

 

Option 2: From IBM Cloud

  1. Log in to IBM Cloud external link. (This takes you to your IBM Cloud dashboard.)
  2. In your IBM Cloud dashboard, click the Watson Machine Learning service instance for which you want to retrieve credentials. (This opens the service details page for the Watson Machine Learning service instance.)
  3. Click Service credentials.
  4. If there are no service credentials yet, click the New credential button.
  5. Under the ACTION menu, click "View credentials".

Option 3: From Watson Studio Local

  1. Log into Watson Studio Local.
  2. Copy the server url for Watson Studio Local from the address bar for your browser. For example, if your web browser shows this path when you are logged in to Watson Studio Local:
     https://111.22.333.444:5555/home?context=wdp
    

    Copy https://111.22.333.444 as the url parameter

  3. Use the username and password you use to access IBM watson Studio Local.
  4. Use ‘icp’ as the instance ID.
