Retrieve your resource id information in your Solcast Toolkit Account

Each location is assigned with a unique resource id which is easily accessible.

When you create a location or site in the Solcast API Toolkit, a resource id is automatically generated. The unique resource id can then be used to make API requests for this location.

For Commercial users, you can obtain your resource Id by:

  1. Selecting Live and Forecast at the top. If you only have access to Live and Forecast, this may be selected by default.
