"Invalid license" message in logs when DevOps build pipeline runs

Hi, I am having trouble setting up Azure Devops for Katalon. Here are the build pipeline settings:

This message is display, then the build times out:

Is Katalon Runtime Engine (DevOps license) required to run Katalon in DevOps?


Hi @nasari

Yes, DevOps license is required to run Katalon in Azure DevOps. If you register with a business email then you’re automatically granted a 30-day trial of Katalon Runtime Engine Floating license, which allows you to execute tests on all platforms (local, Azure Devops, docker, etc). After the trial period, a license that fits your execution environment is required in order to continue using console execution.


You should ask Katalon support team to switch your license to Node-locked or using pipeline with Katalon Docker image to keep DevOps license.


We are running the tests using the Azure DevOps plugin on a Azure hosted VM build Agent.

Does this mean we require just a KRE DevOps license ?

I think you should apply this pipeline:

If you are using Azure DevOps on dynamic Microsoft-hosted machines with Katalon Docker image, you will need a Katalon DevOps license. Sample pipeline configuration: https://github.com/katalon-studio-samples/ci-samples/blob/master/azure-pipelines.yml
