Apoc.conf in DBaaS?

I noticed in neo4j sandbox and services like grapheneDB, I don't have access to $NEO4J_HOME/config/apoc.conf - If I need UUID, is the only solution to spin up my own neo4j on a cloud provider?

You might be able to ask them if they can give you access to that file. The configuration for APOC used to be in neo4j.com in the 3.5 series and was only recently moved to apoc.conf in the 4.x series.
