What Is Katalon Studio?

There are 3 ways to create an automation test

  • Record and Replay
  • Manual Mode

1) Record and Replay:

In record and replay, we can quickly record test cases, capture actions and objects, add validation,  we can update the recorded steps, also we can replay our test in any available browsers.

  • Create a new test case
  • Click on record Web
  • Provide application URL and start to Record some actions
  • Save test Scripts & Objects
  • Run & Verify

2) Manual View:

It’s a test case creation mode, where users can manually add actions/keywords, It supports both with or without programming skills to learn and use test automation.

3) Script View:

Apart from the manual view, Katalon also supports a script view for users, in which we can create our script with programming skills. Users with Groovy/Java backgrounds can easily write the test scripts.

  • Create a new test case
  • Spy the objects required for tests
  • From the main toolbar click on spy web to locate and store objects
  • Save the objects
  • Go to the script view of the test case
  • Create script for test steps
  • A built-in keyword for WebUI testing will display as below from there user can select any keyword which is required

  • For any test object, we need to pass that object which we captured from the spy web‘Object Repository/Page_HRMS/button_Sign In’))
