Accessing the url address of images in Matlab Drive

5 views (last 30 days)
Hi everyone,
I'd like to retrieve the url adress of images stored in my matlab drive, so that I can view them directly afterwards using an url bar.
I'd like to do that via command line because I have hundreds of images.
When using something like "fileattrib", I don't see a line with the url address.
Is there any way to do this?

The files on matlab drive cannot be remotely accessed individually. Even if you publicly share a folder, the share mechanisms do not permit naming individual files within the share.
I asked Mathworks about this a couple of years ago. There were ways to see internal references (using matlab online) but putting them together into a url did not work, and Mathworks confirmed to me that it could not work.

Hi Loïc - Can you provide more context into how/why you would this feature? It would help us see if there are alternative methods to achieve your goals, as well as provide insight into potentially enabling this in a future release.

I don't think Matlab was the correct tool to do that anyway, it's just what I'm familiar with.
The goal was to use Matlab Drive as an image host website - something similar to imgur for example. There are no easy way to batch retrieve the url addresses of hundreds of images there, so I thought that it would be easy with matlab if we have access to the url of the files we upload.
The end goal is to create text+image content on forum-like website.
I'm not even sure that matlab confidentiality polices would authorize this kind of use.
