What Is MATLAB Web App Server?
MATLAB Web App Server™ lets you host MATLAB® apps and Simulink® simulations as interactive web apps. You can create apps using App Designer, package them using MATLAB Compiler™, and host them using MATLAB Web App Server. Your end-users can access and run the web apps using a browser without installing additional software.
MATLAB Web App Server supports integration with authentication standards such as OpenID Connect and LDAP so that you can control access to your web apps. You can host and share multiple apps developed using different releases of MATLAB and Simulink.

MATLAB Web App Server lets you host MATLAB apps and Simulink simulations as interactive web apps. Once the server is set up, you’ll be able to share your apps in just three simple steps:
- Create MATLAB apps using App Designer.
- Package them as web apps.
- Host and share them using MATLAB Web App Server.
Let’s quickly talk about what you need to do to set up the server. First, download and install MATLAB Web App Server from mathworks.com. Then, Download and Install the versions of MATLAB Runtime that will be required for running your web apps. Once installed, you’ll need to configure the server. This is a one-time operation to register services, point to the license manager, and configure MATLAB Runtime, all of which can be done through the webapps-setup script. Finally, start the server using webapps-start.
Once the server has been set up, you can focus on creating your apps. Step 1: App Designer lets you design professional apps in MATLAB. Drag and drop visual components to lay out the design of your user interface (GUI), and use the integrated editor to quickly program the behavior of those components. You can learn more about App Designer in the links below. Step 2: When your app is ready, simply use MATLAB Compiler to package your MATLAB app or Simulink simulation as a web app. Step 3: Finally, host and share your app on MATLAB Web App Server. You can upload your app from the Web Apps home page, or copy and paste the generated package to the apps folder on the server. Now, anyone with access to the server can open and run your web app through their browser of choice, without needing additional software.
You can configure MATLAB Web App Server to integrate with your authentication standards such as LDAP [elle-dap] and OpenID Connect to control and secure access to your web apps. Any number of users can access a single Web App Server, subject to the usual bandwidth constraints. You can also run multiple servers, each with a unique access URL, to enable distinct groups in your organization to find the web apps specific to them, and avoid confusion with others. You can host and share multiple apps developed using different releases of MATLAB and Simulink. If you upgrade to a new release, your web apps from previous releases will continue to run without needing to be repackaged.
MATLAB Web App Server makes it simple to host your MATLAB apps and Simulink simulations and enable others to access them without needing additional software.
