Install plugins offline


#1

Hello, I would like to know how I can install the available plugins offline in my machine where there is no internet connection. I installed the v5.10.1 and I am having hard time to record some of the functionalities. For example; picking dates from the calendar widget, handling the dynamic elements, or handling multiple windows/frames, etc. So I would like to install the free plugins such as CalendarCustomKewword, AssertCustomKeywords, etc. Any help appreciated.

@Parsley, at this moment we don’t support installing plugins offline

Moved to Feature Suggestion. We will work on this feature soon.

The sooner the better please.

With the basic report now being a plug-in, I need to make the junit report in jenkins work.
Unfortunately, I can’t make it connect to the plug-in online everytime I execute due to Security proxy settings we have at work. There should be a way we don’t need to rely on plug-ins being online all the time.

i think you can install plugin offline - to do so

  1. open pc with internet connection, open your Katalon, install plugins, close Katalon
  2. open C:\Users[user].katalon folder
  3. go to your vm/pc which does not have internet connection, open C:\Users[user].katalon folder
  4. in vm - if you did not have plugins installed, then just simply copy “plugin” subfolder
    plugin has subfolders with jars:
    install/13498/1.0.1/…jar
    you can also copy those jar files to vm and in there open Katalon and in menu select - this could be used if you already imported some plugins, because there is also jason file “plugin/preferences.properties” which has path to the installed plugin.

PS if you copied over [user].katalon/plugin folder as is, do not forget to edit [user].katalon/plugin/preferences.properties file to replace user name

Really appreciate your reply. But can you do a step by step blog on this (with screenshot)? Sorry Its super confusing.

By the way, what does the plugin directory do that is with-in the Katalon project? Can’t we just add the jar plugins there? why does it have to be added to the C:\Users[user].katalon directory? Trying to understand the difference between them…

Hi,

@abondarev, thanks for information,

Anyway, I don’t find the file you are talking about (preferences.properties).
By only copying jar files into offline PC, it does’nt work.
Would it be possible to detail what are the files to modify & how to modify them ?

Thanks in advance

Just curious what is this “Plugins” directory used for?

Katalon let’s me have one keyword plugin there. I cannot have more than one. I guess it loads the first plugin based on the alphabetical order?

Our installation of Katalon Studio is behind a firewall on a virtual machine for security reasons. Having a way to download the plugins locally and install them offline to our VMs would be an excellent idea.
