Run License Manager Using Amazon Web Services

You can connect MATLAB® running on the cloud to a network license manager that is also running on the cloud using Amazon® Web Services (AWS).


To use the network license manager reference architecture for AWS, you need:

  • An Amazon Web Services (AWS) account with required permissions. To see what is required, look at the example policy.

  • An SSH key pair for your AWS account in your chosen region. Create an SSH key pair if you do not already have one. For instructions, see the AWS documentation.

  • 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.

  • To be an administrator of the network license that you want to use.

  • To assume all costs of using Amazon Web Services.


To view instructions for deploying the network license manager for MATLAB reference architecture, select a MATLAB release from the GitHub repository.
