If I use "Save or Publish" button in top right, it uploads notebook and gives me URL of location. What if I forget the location, is there a way to retrieve the ULR later for that notebook?

My current pattern is to copy-paste the following cell into beginning of every notebook. When I run it, it publishes the notebook and inserts URL of the location into the notebook. It's a bit cumbersome.

(* deploys with canonical name *)
deploy := Module[{notebookFn, parentDir, cloudFn, result},
   notebookFn = FileNameSplit[NotebookFileName[]][[-1]];
   parentDir = FileNameSplit[NotebookFileName[]][[-2]];
   cloudFn = parentDir~StringJoin~"/"~StringJoin~notebookFn;
   result = 
    CloudDeploy[SelectedNotebook[], CloudObject[cloudFn], 
     Permissions -> "Public", SourceLink -> None];
   Print["Uploading to ", cloudFn];

You can get a list of all cloud objects with CloudObjects. Also, CloudObjects["dir"] returns all cloud objects in given directory "dir".

Then, you can use First to extract the URL.

First /@ CloudObjects[]

(* {"https://www.wolframcloud.com/obj/domen/Base", 
    "https://www.wolframcloud.com/obj/domen/userEIWLs"} *)

First /@ CloudObjects["Desktop"]
(* {"https://www.wolframcloud.com/obj/domen/Desktop/Document3.nb"} *)
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, looks like I can use this to do this to get the published name: fn[s_] := Last@FileNameSplit[s]; Select[CloudObjects["Published"], fn@First@# == fn@NotebookFileName[] &] $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 5, 2023 at 0:30
