Is this possible? I'm able to do so outside of Matlab by sending a POST request to 

But I'd like to do so within Matlab so I'm seeking another method.

Hi ,


You can use the following MATLAB code as a template to send a POST request to create a channel from within MATLAB, 

UserApiKey = 'xxxxxxxxx'; % This is your account API key found on the Account -> My Account Page
url = ''; 
data = ['api_key=',UserApiKey, '&name=test channel']; % These are the parameters for the POST request
response = webwrite(url,data) % Using webwrite command to send a POST request


You can visit the for an example as how to use MATLAB commands to send GET and POST requests.
