Katalon License Management

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

You can access Katalon TestOps to subscribe, create, and distribute licenses. Only an organization Owner or Admin can access the License tab of the organization. For more details about roles and default permissions, please view this document.

Before assigning a license, the organization owner/admin must add the team member(s) to the organization in the Katalon TestOps. Once added, the admin can assign a Katalon license to any team member, or withdraw a license if no longer needed.

The available licenses are the remaining licenses after the license quota subtracts the total number of offline licenses created and currently active online licenses.

Available licenses = License quota – (Offline licenses + Active online licenses)

Create and Assign an Online KSE/RE License


  1. In Katalon TestOps, go to Organization > License.
  2. Register the on-demand users by adding them to the Registered Users list.

Notes: The number of registered users cannot exceed the license quota.

When the registered users activate KSE, their machine IDs are added to the Online Licenses in Katalon TestOps.


Any members of an organization can use the RE online licenses that the organization has purchased. To run KS/KSE from the CLI, you need to add API keys to the command.

Create and Assign an Offline RE/KSE License

Offline licenses, once generated, cannot be revoked or terminated. The valid period for each offline license is 60 days. The available licenses for online usage equal the license quota subtracting the number of created offline licenses.

You need a machine ID to generate an offline license for both KSE and RE.

To view a machine ID:

  1. Open Katalon Studio
  2. In the Katalon Studio Activation window, click Offline Activation to view and copy the machine ID.

To generate a license:

  1. Go to Katalon TestOps.
  2. Select Organization > License.
  3. In the KSE or RE view, select Create Offline License.
  4. Enter a machine ID.
  5. Click Create. The newly created offline license is added to the Offline Licenses list.
