User-defined options to run on worker when task finishes





The task being evaluated by the worker


taskFinish(task) runs automatically on a worker each time the worker finishes evaluating a task for a particular job. You do not call this function from the client session, nor explicitly as part of a task function.

You add MATLAB code to the taskFinish.m file to define anything you want executed on the worker when a task is finished. The worker looks for taskFinish.m in the following order, executing the one it finds first:

  1. Included in the job's AttachedFiles property.

  2. In a folder included in the job's AdditionalPaths property.

  3. In the worker's MATLAB® installation at the location


To create a version of taskFinish.m for AttachedFiles or AdditionalPaths, copy the provided file and modify it as required. For further details on taskFinish and its implementation, see the text in the installed taskFinish.m file.
