Apply Minimum Input Length to OR Search (was Slow Object Repository Search As You Type)

Katalon Studio: 6.3.3 and 7.0.0 (beta)

When a new test case step requires a test object, searching the Test Object Input dialog is incredibly slow when typing.
This slow response is caused by each keystroke filtering the objects.
There should be an option to set a minimum length or disable the search-as-you-type feature.


Hi @jason.tolotta Me too. I have around 3000K files in object Repo.

Could please mention the size of your object Repo, so the Katalon dev team can have a fair idea.

That’s actually a great Suggestion, @jason.tolotta. I’ll reword yor Topic title and move this to the correct forum category.

Yes I completely agree, as a solution there could be a timeout of .5sec used on keyUp that clears the timeout with each new keyUp, that way it only runs after user has completed typing.

Thanks for the great app!
