Click with the gradient tool. You can also drag the gradient tool across the shape to change the size of the gradient.

All of the below are alterations of the top one.

After you have filled your object with the gradient,(with the object selected) click where you would like the centerpoint to be.

I can't make this work... But, ah, dragging the frame with the object select arrow works, if oddly. Click to select the frame, drag the center point. You then have to reposition the frame where you want it.

 

There must be a better way...

I believe it's fixed at the centerpoint of the object. But you could use a second frame to clip it differently. Create the gradient object, Cut, Paste Into a second frame.

 

Imperfect, but ID =/= Illustrator. 🙂
