Q: How can I use the Katalon license without the internet connection from home?
A: Yes, you can with the offline license. Please check this document for more information: Online and Offline Licenses

Q: Is it possible to fetch data from database real time? I mean without doing any action in Katalon. As far as I know, now Katalon can fetch data from database after clicking button fetch data on test data from database.

Q: Can you connect to Selenium Grid?
A: You can execute your scripts on remote machines by using Selenium Grid. Please learn more here.

Q: I have defined the API payload under keywords, how to execute from the test case?

Thanks again for your interest in our event. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming webinars!

Stay safe and Happy testing,

  1. Listen only mode for “participants” made them an audience, not participants. I have worked from home for ~25 years - I could have provided input.
  2. It felt rushed.
  3. Not enough time was spent on each chosen topic - watching a mouse dancing around a screen is distracting. The presenter should slow down and move the mouse purposefully and avoid unnecessary movements.
  4. Many opportunities were missed to highlight well-documented features using links to documentation and forum posts. I posted some which the presenters seemed to think were questions :roll_eyes:
  5. Unable to see other “participants”. Another reason why listen only mode is bad. I think Gotomeeting would be better than GotoWebinar.
