Custom Keywords which was supported in community versions (free KS version) will not be supported going forward

Hi All,
Looks like Custom Keywords which was supported in community versions will not be supported going forward. This is going to be a big impact for us as we use this a lot. Has anyone got similar information from the Katalon team? If yes, how are you trying to mitigate the risks ?
Thanks in advance.

@yashaswini once made another post:

possibly this relates to this post.


Quoting from his post:

Also, effective August 1, we will be moving the capabilities of Custom Keywords and generating more than 40 Test Suites to the Enterprise version to more accurately reflect the intended purpose of the Free version, which is for individual usage only.

Well, yes, this sentence reads that “Katalon team is going to move the capability of Custom Keywords … to Enterprise version”. This implies that the KS free version will be no longer capable of creating/using Custom Keywords at all.

Well, this is hard for me to believe to be the case. I guess that the author of the Katalon letter wrote it just poorly; he/she meant something else.


Please clarify this case.
