    I recall a community edition license being restricted, where you can't use the product as a server or for automating test execution (soatestcli). Instead, you should be able to start the SOAtest/Virtualize desktop user interface and license things there. Otherwise, you will need to purchase a server/automation license.

    To open the SOAtest/Virtualize desktop user interface on a Linux system would need a display environment, like a connected display or VNC support. I run SOAtest on Ubuntu but run an X server in Windows. I've been using VcXrv but Xming is also popular.

    In order to get Virtualize Community Edition, you had to register. Open the Parasoft Virtualize UI, and go to the menu Parasoft > Preferences. Once the dialog opens, expand License and choose Community Edition. On that page, enter the email address that you used to register, and click Apply. That will automatically install the license that you can use for Community Edition.

    You will be able to create HTTP-based virtual assets and start the server to host those assets from within the UI interface.

    You would probably need to talk with your IT/system admin for help setting up your Ubuntu system with a graphical display environment.

    You are trying to run soatestcli, which is used for executing SOAtest test cases from the command line. That functionality is not supported using Virtualize community edition. You must have purchased a valid SOAtest license to use that functionality.
