You can connect MATLAB running on the cloud to a network license manager that is also running on the cloud using Microsoft Azure.


To use this reference architecture, you need:

  • A Microsoft Azure account. You are responsible for the costs of all Microsoft Azure services.

  • A valid MathWorks® network license, configured for cloud use.

    To configure the network license for cloud use:

    1. Sign in to your MathWorks Account.

    2. Select the license you want to use.

    3. Go to Install and Activate.

    4. In the text box for License Manager, click the edit icon (a pencil).

    5. Follow the steps for Change Licensing.
