After using MATLAB App Designer to create apps with user interface components, domain experts package them as interactive web apps using MATLAB Compiler. To run Simulink simulations as web apps, domain experts package the compiled Simulink model and MATLAB code used to set up, run, and analyze the simulation using Simulink Compiler™.
IT System Administrators
IT system administrators manage the operation of MATLAB Web App Server within the organization’s enterprise IT ecosystem. MATLAB Web App Server automatically handles the hosting and sharing of multiple web apps, even if they require different MATLAB Runtime versions to run.
End users access and run the interactive web apps using a browser via a unique URL to the MATLAB Web App Server home page or to the app itself. No additional MathWorks software is required to run the web apps.
Use authentication to validate user credentials and provide access to the web apps hosted on MATLAB Web App Server. MATLAB Web App Server supports authentication using Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and OpenID Connect (OIDC).
Role-Based Access Control
Control access to web apps by configuring MATLAB Web App Server to assign roles to individuals in your organization. App authors can create, upload, delete, and run web apps; end users can only run web apps.
Policy-Based Access Control
Provide access to individual apps or app folders using policy-based access control in MATLAB Web App Server. Users who are authorized to access certain apps or app folders can only see and run those specific apps.
Migrate Previously Deployed Web Apps with No Additional Work
MATLAB apps developed using release R2019b or later releases can be simultaneously hosted and shared using the same MATLAB Web App Server instance. You do not have to repackage web apps when you upgrade to a newer release of MATLAB or Simulink.
Configure MATLAB Web App Server to use MATLAB Runtime, a collection of shared libraries that supports the execution of MATLAB and Simulink based web apps. You can install and run multiple versions of MATLAB Runtime starting from release R2019b on the same MATLAB Web App Server instance.
Add End Users Without Adding Licenses
Each server-instance of MATLAB Web App Server lets you host and run as many apps and serve as many end users as the server hardware has the capacity to support.
Set Up Multiple Server-Instances for Your Teams
Install multiple server-instances of MATLAB Web App Server to support and run MATLAB web apps for individual departments or teams in the organization. Each server-instance is accessed by a unique URL serving end users of that specific department.
