Login Named User (LNU) is a portable license option that verifies license rights over the internet. LNU is ideal for usage on cloud compute services because it does not rely on having a static Host ID. Instead of locking the license to a Host ID It requires users to log into their MathWorks Account each time they start MATLAB. As such, LNU requires an uninterrupted internet connection.
Login Named User can only be enabled on Individual licenses which are currently subscribed to the MATLAB Software Maintenance Service.
If you are the license administrator on an Individual license, you can enable LNU here:
