When your organization runs GMUS and makes a REST call to run the Scenario without an Offline Certificate, then GMUS will make a validation call to the Web App before Executing the Scenario. This call is made to ensure that the user profile is valid and enabled in GenRocket.
If you run the GMUS on a restricted network server, online validation will not be possible. In these instances, you must use the GMUS Offline Certificate to validate the user profile locally on your computer.
Note: You do not need to use a GMUS offline certificate if you are connected to the Internet in a non-secure/corporate environment.
How Does the Offline Certificate Work?
- Each GMUS offline certificate is specific to a GenRocket Organization and Web App.
- Each GMUS offline certificate lasts for 24 hours.
- After 24 hours, you must download a new GMUS offline certificate and place it in your .genrocket directory.
