Use client certificate for requests in API projects in Katalon Studio

  • You need an active Katalon Studio Enterprise license.

  • This setting is only applied for requests in API/Web Services projects.

Katalon Studio can be configured to use the client certificate for all requests. You can configure the client certificate by navigating to Project > Settings > Network > Client certificate settings. To sign all the requests from Katalon Studio, you need to specify the full path to your KeyStore file and the KeyStore Password. The recommended key store format is PKCS #12 (.p12).

client certificate settings

To generate public and private key pairs (KeyStore and KeyStore Password) for the above configuration, you can use the keytool utility that is included in the JDK installation. Do as follows:

  1. Open the command prompt and navigate to the bin folder in the JDK folder.
  2. Run this command to create a KeyStore:
    keytool -genkey -alias katalon -keyalg RSA -keystore katalon.keystore
  3. Enter a password for the new KeyStore and provide the utility with the required information: your name, the name of your organization, etc.
  4. To export a certificate with your public key, run this command:
    keytool -export -alias katalon -file katalon.cer -keystore katalon.keystore
