Looking through Names["System`Cloud*"], I found CloudObjectInformation. I think this is what you're looking for.

obj = CloudDeploy[
  FormFunction[{"x" -> <|"Input" -> "Apple"|>}, Identity], 

Here's its UUID:

CloudObjectInformation[obj, "UUID"]

Here's its path:

CloudObjectInformation[obj, "Path"]

If I only know the UUID and want the path:

uuid = "8112805a-013b-46b9-bdc4-2b20b037d795";
CloudObjectInformation[CloudObject[URLBuild[{$CloudBase, "objects", uuid}]], "Path"]
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for your undocumentational function,I don't know how do you guess the "Path",I just have tried CloudObjects["tem"]["Properties"] ,Inspiring. :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @yode I ran CloudObjectInformation with 1 argument first and it gave a whole table of data, with uuid and path as elements. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Since WL 12.1, the Information function now does the same thing, and is calling CloudObjectInformation under the hood. In the documentation you can see this under Examples > Scope > System Objects. $\endgroup$
