You can provision the Watson Query service from the Cloud Pak for Data as a Service console. Follow these steps to provision Watson Query for Cloud Pak for Data as a Service.

  1. If necessary, log in to IBM Cloud and upgrade your IBM Cloud account to Pay-as-you-go. For more information, see Upgrading your account.
  2. From the IBM Cloud console, go to Manage > Billing and usage, and select Promotions to apply your promo code for a promotional credit toward Watson Query usage.

Provisioning from the catalog, the command line, or the API

You can provision a deployment by visiting the service's catalog page or by specifying the service ID to the command line or to the API. The deployment type is determined by the service ID, which you must specify when you create a Watson Query deployment by using the command line or API.
