Katalon Trial Plan

This article provides an overview of the Katalon Trial Plan and what it encompasses, as well as how you can start using Katalon on a Trial Plan.


The Katalon Trial Plan is designed for new users, offering a comprehensive introduction to Katalon's suite of tools which are: Katalon Platform, Katalon Studio Enterprise (KSE), and Katalon Runtime Engine (KRE) through a 30-day trial period. This is automatically activated after you create and successfully verify your account.

Upon activation, new users will be granted the following for free:

Katalon Platform Trial Plan:

  • 3,500 Monthly Test Results
  • Unlimited Platform Users
  • 5 Active Projects

Once the trial expires, you'll have to upgrade to paid options to continue to use. Refer to Katalon Pricing to choose your suitable plan.

Katalon Trial Licenses:

Each trial license can be activated on only one machine at a time.

Once your 30-day trial period expires, you have the option to continue using Katalon by subscribing to our paid plans or purchasing licenses/sessions. This ensures uninterrupted access to KSE, KRE and TestCloud.

For information about our subscription options and how to purchase them, see: Kataon Pricing.
