[API Testing]

Hi, need some help as I am totally new to katalon studio. In my Test case, I have generated access token from an API and assigned to a Global variable. Next, I need to use this access token as bearer token to another API call. How do I accomplish this. Please advise.

def tokenResponse = new JsonSlurper()
def result = tokenResponse.parseText(reso.getResponseBodyContent())

def keycloakToken = result.access_token

GlobalVariable.authToken = keycloakToken

Hi there,

Thank you very much for your topic. Please note that it may take a little while before a member of our community or from Katalon team responds to you.


[Katalon Studio]

Hi,did you made a new configuration with multi navigator ,because my Vm crash with cpu at 100%

[Web Testing]

Is there some “public” access to have another reference other that “WebUI” as my alias for “WebUiBuiltInKeywords”?

With Katalon Studio, I would like to know if there is anything you can tell “us” about using another alias, other than “WebUI”, such that I can use for example, “WebBot”, or “WebAI”, and it works not only in Script view but also in Manual view.

import com.kms.katalon.core.webui.keyword.WebUiBuiltInKeywords as WebBot

Changing the alias in Script view works right away, however, if I should move to Manual view, all my WebBot statements become, Method Call Statement, yet if I use WebUI, I see the correct statements. So somewhere, you allow both words to do the same thing. Is that location “public” and can it take another word (or can there only be ONE) :cloud_with_lightning_and_rain: ?

I tried with this configuration but i have the problem with multi navigators…and i don’t know why… and i share you screenshot

Actualy i have 16giga ram and 8 core and my virtual machine crash with to much chrome launched by katalon…(15 or more because the vm crash before)

Thanks for create a ticker but necessary to add more informations…When i launch katalon a lot of chrome are open (more than 15 in my case ) ans my virtual machine crash,but it s strange because i have only 1 broswer open.did you made a new feauture for best performance in the last release?
Sorry to contact you directly but i worked directly during 4 month with a team katalon for working on xray

Hi there @grylion54 and @sebastien.jarrot, :wave:

I have moved your questions to this thread so that our Product Supoprt team members can take a look at them more closely. Please allow them up to 3 days to get back to you. :+1:


Thanks a lot and i’ll upvote

We analayse with a devops and sys admin and apparently we have a problem with the update of chrome driver on 29 may 2024.we could planify a teams meeting to see toghether if you want…

Hi there @satyavani_katneni

Thanks for submitting the question and allowing us some time to respond.

From the script, I saw that you have already set the global variable name authToken. Therefore, to use this variable into the authorization field you just only need to follow the format ${GlobalVariable.authToken}

Therefore, in the authorization section, what you need to input is Bearer ${GlobalVariable.authToken}

I hope this response clarifies your concerns. Enjoy testing!

How to skip testsuites using TestListener instead of custom keyword?

What is the keyword for skip TestSuite?
(i.e); For Skip A TestCase, *


I have gone through all the reference and methods, but I have yet to find a solution for this.

Any ideas that work would be greatly appreciated!!!

[Katalon Studio]

doubt the passing command line arguments to the desktop application testing Script

I can pass the command line arguments with the desired capabilities, but it works only in object Native Record. Object Record / Spy mode and at the runtime(while executing the script) command line is not working

Can anyone please explain how to pass the arguments dynamically in each script execution?

Hi Product Support team,

I’m a newbie to Mobile testing, and I’m wondering what troubleshooting steps I should take when executing a Mobile test case for the first time?

When I tried to perform WebUI testing with Katalon Studio, the WebUI.click() keyword sometimes does not click in some test environments. Is there any good practice to handle this?
