Hello,
I'm trying to install MATLAB on a headless server with the silent install options as described here: https://uk.mathworks.com/help/install/ug/install-noninteractively-silent-installation.html
It works but it always installs all the toolboxes in the ISO but I only want the base Matlab without any toolboxes. The installer_input.txt file suggests that at the end entries such as product.MATLAB is used to specify which toolbox can be installed but the installer seems to ignore this.
My log file is:

Could you tell me how to only install specific toolboxes non-interactively, please?

So the issue is a bug that's fixed in R2021a, where if destinationFolder is not set, all products available will be installed.
The fix is to explicitly set this key, e.g.
destinationFolder=/usr/local/MATLAB/R2020b
fileInstallationKey=xxxx
agreeToLicense=yes
outputFile=/tmp/mathworks.log
licensePath=/tmp/network.lic
product.MATLAB

Yes. The cut down input file is:
fileInstallationKey=xxxx
agreeToLicense=yes
outputFile=/tmp/mathworks.log
licensePath=/tmp/network.lic
product.MATLAB
Same result if I use the template and just uncommented the required lines.
PS. I've also raised a service request.
