I have a just one databin.

Databins[]

(*
    {Databin[Short ID: 6P1ixTl6Entry count: 0]}
*)

Question 1: can I delete it?

I've tried with DatabinRemove, but it seems DatabinRemove can only delete the data in this databin.

Question 2: can I assign a name to this databin?

I'm not sure if there is a command for it: I have never found one.

Deletion: However, you can use the web interface to Wolfram Data Drop to manage your databins, including renaming them and removing any of them entirely. The direct link to the administration page is the following: https://datadrop.wolframcloud.com/admin

Here is a link to the user guide for the Wolfram Data Drop that mentions databin administration functions, where you can see that one of the possible actions is deleting the databin (the thrash an icon): http://www.wolfram.com/datadrop/quick-reference/databin-administration/

Renaming: If you click on any databin in the "My Databins" page, it will open an info page on the specific databin. Click on its name and it will allow you to change it.

The name is considered one of the options of a Databin object, so you can also use the following to change the name of an existing Databin:

SetOptions[DataBin[yourdatabinID], "Name" -> "A nice new name"]

In my understanding, however, the name property cannot be used to refer to the databin directly, or at least I haven't found a way to do it.

  • $\begingroup$ Bad thing is I cann't open and show some content @ admin page of datadrop. :) $\endgroup$ – HyperGroups Sep 16 '15 at 14:19
  • $\begingroup$ You can delete the databin with DeleteFile[bin], where bin is the Databin object. $\endgroup$ – JEM_Mosig Apr 3 at 14:54
