Wolfram Enterprise Private Cloud (EPC) can be activated with or without internet access. This article describes steps to license the product on a machine with an active internet connection.

This process will activate two licenses:

  • Wolfram Engine: This license enables functionality for the web application. Once activated, computational kernels will be functional, and users will be able to create sessions and perform evaluations in your EPC.
  • Wolfram Desktop: Your virtual machine comes with a copy of Wolfram Desktop preinstalled. This needs to be activated in order to configure the settings for your EPC.

To activate your EPC, we will first need to obtain a password from the User Portal and then enter the password into your EPC.

Obtain Your Password

  1. Navigate to EPC desktop to find EPC Management Utilities.
  2. Open the Activate Cloud utility. The Cloud Activation window appears.
  3. Select Activate With Internet. Your Machine ID together with fields for an Activation Key and a Password are displayed.
  4. Note your Machine ID.

    We will return to this dialog after obtaining the Activation Key and Password.
  5. Go to the Password Request Form. If necessary, log in with your User Portal credentials.
  6. Enter the Machine ID into the Math ID field and your Activation Key into the Activation Key field.
  7. Select Generate Password. A password will be generated.
  8. Note this password.

Enter Activation Key and Password

  1. Return to the Activate With Internet dialog by once again going on EPC desktop, selecting Activate Cloud and then selecting Activate With Internet.
  2. Enter the Activation Key and the password generated above.
  3. Press Activate. The Wolfram Engine and Wolfram Desktop licenses will both be Activated.

Your EPC is now ready for configuration.
