Manage Katalon Licenses

After purchasing Katalon Studio Enterprise (KSE) and/or Katalon Runtime Engine (KRE) licenses, you can attribute, transfer, and remove granted licenses from Katalon TestOps.

  • You must be the Owner or Admin of your Organization to access the License Management page. For further details on roles and user management, see: User Management.
  • The Owner or Admin of an Organization needs to assign a paid license to all of their users to avoid mixed Katalon Studio and Katalon Studio Enterprise licenses within an organization. For further information, refer to the Free Offerings term in Terms of Use.

Grant a license to users

You can assign licenses to users. See Grant a License to users.

Once you have assigned a license successfully, users can follow this activation guide: Activate Katalon License.

Remove a license

You can remove a Licensed User, a machine ID, or a license from a machine ID. See Remove the KSE license from assigned user.

Transfer a license between users

Transferring licenses ensures an organization's users can pass licenses between each other as needed. Users without a license attributed to them can still have the privileges of a free plan. To learn more about Katalon Plans, read: Version 8.0.0 - 8.0.1.

  • To transfer a KRE license, simply terminate the session currently using it. It will then be available for use again.

Licenses can be transferred between users as long as the organization does not exceed its license quota. To do so, follow these steps:
  1. Removing a license from the user associated with it. For a more detailed explanation, see: Remove the KRE license from assigned users.
  2. Reassign the license by granting it again from the License Management page. For more details, see: Grant an online license to users.
You have transferred your license between users.
  • To remove a KRE license, simply terminate the session currently using it. It will then be available for use again.


Transfer the KRE license to another machine

All licensed Users in an Organization can use available KRE licenses by default once the Organization has purchased the KRE licenses.

Licensed Users activate a KRE license by running KSE with KRE. After activation, their machine ID is then added to the Online Licenses section. This license is then reserved for their use.

Therefore, to make a KRE license available when all licenses are reserved, a machine ID has to be deactivated.

To deactivate a machine ID, see: Remove a registered machine ID.
