Is Katalon Dynamic Test Suite broken for Katalon runtimeengine for 7.8.0?

When running Dynamic Test Suite query on KSE, it runs fun, but running in jenkins using the katalon docker image, I get this error:

I thought this was supposed to be fixed in 7.8.0, because I saw a similar error in 7.7.2 and decided not to update to that…

This was the previously logged issue: Katalon gives error while running test suite in dockers integration with Gitlab

Should note before the same setup I have has worked for Katalon 7.5.5 for running on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with the katalon provided docker image.

Hi @nathaniel.s.thompson,

This is a known bug since v7.6.x. This issue will be resolved in the next release.

Thanks for your report

Do you have an ETA on the next version? We are trying to validate Katalon for our company and this may delay that.

The fix version will be available soon. I will talk to the product team early next week to finalize the release day.

Hi @nathaniel.s.thompson,

The fix is available in Katalon Studio v7.8.1. Please check for update.

Ok cool thanks are you guys going to release an updated docker image for 7.8.1?

Hi @nathaniel.s.thompson,

We’ve just released Katalon docker image for v7.8.1. Please pull the latest image.

@duyluong will be nice if you will use a pipeline so, whenever a katalon version is released the docker image is updated too. Usualy the docker image is few versions behind the latest stable katalon at the release day (gets updated few days later).
And ofcourse will be even greatest if beta, rc and so on imges are available too.
I think i mentioned this into the meeting i had with @YoungNgo.
Cheers!
