Activate Katalon License

In this article, we will guide you through the activation of your Katalon Studio Enterprise (KSE) and Katalon Runtime Engine (KRE) licenses.

Note:
  • To learn more about Katalon licenses, see Types of Licenses.

Activate Trial License

From Katalon Studio version 7.0.0 onwards, when you first log in to the Katalon Studio application, the trial license associated with your account is automatically activated and valid for 30 days. Each trial KSE or KRE license is tied to one Katalon account.

First, download and open Katalon Studio. The Katalon Studio Activation automatically pops up. Enter the email and password registered for your Katalon account, then click Activate.
