Create an offline license
An Offline License allows you to use KSE and KRE without internet. Once an offline license is generated, you cannot revoke or transfer it to a different machine.
By default, an offline license expires at the end of your subscription period. It can also be set to expire earlier by inputting a different expiry date when generating the offline license file.
When an offline license expires, you can generate a new offline license file to continue using KSE/KRE offline, or you can switch to an online license instead.
As a machine ID is required to create an offline license, Katalon generates a machine ID based on the hardware specifications and the user's account logging in to that machine.
if User A logs in to A's account on Machine A, Katalon generates a machine ID X.
If User B logs in to B's account on Machine A, Katalon generates a machine ID Y.
This means that you need two offline licenses for User A and User B.
Once converted to an offline license, a KSE/KRE license is bound to a machine until it expires. You cannot undo this action. The license is unremovable.
You can only convert an annual node-locked license into an offline license.
You must be the Owner or Admin of your Organization.
You have already received the User's machine ID. You can send this guide to your users: View Machine ID, for instructions on how to find a machine ID.
Follow these steps:
Sign in to Katalon TestOps.
Go to Settings > License Management.
The Licenses page appears.

You can also add a note on the offline license in the Description section.
You should double check the machine IDs to make sure you distribute offline licenses to the right users.
