    Hi Sky,

    Can you please share your code snippet here? (removing confidential information like API Keys and Secret)

    My best guess is that you failed to require Cloudinary.

    const cloudinary = require('cloudinary').v2;

    You also have to make sure to have installed the Cloudinary SDK if you haven't done so yet.
