Log In to the Cloud

Account and License Requirements

Access to the MathWorks® Cloud requires a MathWorks Account, a valid MATLAB® license, and an up-to-date MathWorks Software Maintenance Service contract.

If you do not have a MathWorks Account, the application allows you to create one and to associate it with your license. Alternatively, create an account at the MathWorks Web site, http://www.mathworks.com, and then follow these steps to associate your license with your account:

  1. On the MathWorks website, click My Account.

  2. In the License Center pane, click Manage Licenses.

  3. Click Add License and follow the instructions.

If you do not have a user ID for your account, the application prompts you to create one. The user ID becomes part of the identifiers for your output and session information.

On the cloud, you can run commands for MATLAB and all other MathWorks products that your license includes. For information about limitations that affect running commands, see Limitations.

Connecting from Your Device

  1. Start MATLAB Mobile™.

  2. Specify that you want to connect to the cloud:

    • If you have not defined any connections to your computer, a welcome screen appears. Select Connect to MathWorks Cloud. Enter your account information and log in.

    • If you already defined a connection to your computer, MATLAB Mobile attempts to reconnect to that computer. To define a cloud connection, tap the Menu button or the menu and tap Settings. Then, tap MathWorks Account. Enter your account information and log in.

Cloud Storage

The MathWorks Cloud provides cloud storage for MATLAB files, data, figures, and variables. Users receive up to 500 MB of storage on the cloud.

Unless you explicitly close or clear them, figures and variables that you create on the cloud persist after you exit the application, and are available the next time you connect. The best practice is to close figures and clear workspace variables that you no longer want.

Logging Out from Your Device

To log out and remove your account information from MATLAB Mobile, tap the Menu button or the menu and tap Settings. Then, tap your email address and tap Log Out.
