TestCloud: Unexpected response in GitLab CI/CD

I’ve been trying to use katalon runtime engine with GitLab CI/CD. I’m the person who is setting up CI/CD and this is my first assignment with Katalon Runtime Engine. However when I try to run the batch script that written for the KRE via the GitLab it gives unauthorized errors. I’m using a api key that my team provided me. It’s a api key generated by Katalon Studio installed in another machine. Also, it’s a single user license.

I think I might need a separate license within the machine to generate another api key for KRE through Katalon Studio. What could be the exact reason for this error


As per Error log, You don`t have a valid Licensee of KRE & TestCloud.

Hi @atul.rai

Thanks for your input. Yes that was a license issue. Company provided me a license and now I’m able to run test suites via GitLab CI/CD
