Katalon Studio Overview

What is Katalon Studio?

Katalon Studio is an automated testing software designed to help organizations perform automated testing across websites, APIs, mobile, and desktop applications. It enables IT teams to locate, detect, and store test objects in a centralized repository and streamline the scripting process with built-in object spying, code completion, and refactoring capabilities.

Administrators can utilize Katalon Studio’s web testing module to detect issues such as functional discrepancies, security breaches, traffic stress, and integration issues. It allows IT professionals to test the functionality, reliability, and performance of APIs in the business layer to ensure that API implementation is secure from external threats. DevOps teams can record test actions, inspect running application objects, and present them in a tree view.

Katalon Studio facilitates integration with various third-party platforms such as Jira, Slack, TestRail, Jenkins, Bamboo, Microsoft Teams, BrowserStack, Kobiton, and more. Other features include error detection, load testing, automated alerts, project management, custom templates, data migration, and test scheduling.

Katalon Studio - The one stop solution to software testing

Now all my test scripts are built with this tool. I don't have to solely rely on Postman to test backend APIs or just Selenium Webdriver to test frontend web applications or Appium to automate mobile applications.

I do prepare all my automation test scripts now using Katalon Studio.

Front end web testing, with ease

We have to deploy software to numerous systems, numerous times per month. Katalon offers the flexibility to run some basic sanity checks to ensure our deployments were successful, without a ton of manual testing hours to verfiy.

Now all my test scripts are built with this tool. I don't have to solely rely on Postman to test backend APIs or just Selenium Webdriver to test frontend web applications or Appium to automate mobile applications.

I do prepare all my automation test scripts now using Katalon Studio.

Pros

The tool can be used to test the following:
1) API
2) Web Applications
3) Mobile applications

Requires minimal programming knowledge to leverage the tool for application testing.

Easily integrated with 3rd party applications like Slack.

Ready, Handy and FREE plugins available to make testing more effective.

Test scripts are interchangeable with Selenium Webdriver.

Cons

Since this tool is somewhat new in the market compared to Selenium Webdriver, hence, its at times difficult to find solutions if a user is stuck in a problem. However, the KS developers tries their level best to find the suitable solution for you as early as possible.

Pros

Learning curve is relatively quick and easy to get going with your first few basic tests. There is also a lot of documentation out there if you get stuck on something.

Cons

The design is horrible. It feels like interacting with an app built in the early 2000s. BUT, it works well.

Katalon Studio broke the bordom of my WFH habits....

Pros

Once I started to use Katalon Studio, questions came to mind like, why haven't I used this tool before?
I realized that was an utter waste of time trying to piece together pieces of software Jigsaw, dealing with inherited and unwanted bugs which have not stopped creeping in my software solution & presentations
Katalon has been a game changer, it broke the boredom of my WFH habits. I always recommend Katalon to my clients and net workers who shared the same feeling with me.
So my advice is as follows: Stop wasting your money, time & efforts if you want a onestopshop software #automation tool that does it all like katalon Studio try it for yourself and you will see what I mean.....

Cons

Nothing I disliked about Katalon, the only thing I found unfair is the massive hypes about other tools who impose extra work with unnecessary time to solve their bugs. While Katalon sitting & undiscovered by those who do not know of such a killer out there in the market that is to say, onestopshop software test automation solution.

API Automation - It is good
UI Automation - Not good

Pros

Well organized and easy to use. For APIs its straight forward

Cons

Mobile UI automation is quite tough to setup. Android automation, once we make a script using the a particular mobile using the recorder, we were not able to use it on another model phone. When recording, the ids which the Katalon Studio is creating were changing for the next phone and hence it is not recognizing the on other phones.

On the Iphone UI automation, most of the Iphones are not getting recognized. We spent 2 months on doing research and it is pretty inconsistent. Finally we moved just to Appium and manually create the scripts which is the reliable solution from years.
