Hi @guy.mason

Thank you for reaching out. We appreciate your inquiry and value your interest in Katalon Cloud Studio. Please find below the information you requested:

  1. Feature parity between Katalon Cloud Studio and Katalon Recorder:
  • Katalon Cloud Studio offers a user-friendly test authoring capability with test steps presented in plain English, comprehensive keyword suggestions, and descriptions. This makes test creation and review easier for users.
  • Additionally, as a web-based tool located on TestOps, Cloud Studio offers convenient access from any web browser, allowing you to work on your tests anytime and anywhere.
  • You can freely execute Cloud Studio test cases with Katalon TestCloud and conveniently view the test reports on TestOps, providing an all-in-one platform experience.
  • The product is still in the development stage and requires further improvements to match the functionality of KR-KS4. We highly value the sincere feedback from our valuable users, as it helps us make Cloud Studio significantly more useful and efficient for you.
  • While we have planned release timelines, they are subject to changes based on new findings and user feedback. We assure you that we will keep our users informed of every new update.
  1. Compatibility of existing KR test scripts/suites with Cloud Studio: This is not available for now, we have it in our backlog to consider. We will inform KR users when we have any specific plan for it.

  2. Scripting support:
    At the moment, our Cloud Studio doesn’t support scripting, which means you won’t be able to apply your scripting knowledge.
    While we understand your interest in scripting, we cannot provide a definite confirmation regarding its introduction in the future. If scripting is considered at a later stage, it is important to be aware that there may be slight differences in the way you write tests due to the use of different frameworks.
    We appreciate your understanding in this matter, and we will make sure to keep you updated on any further developments regarding scripting capabilities in Cloud Studio.

  3. Pricing: The product is currently in the Beta phase, and during this period, it is completely free to use. We will provide further information about pricing as we near the general availability launch.

We appreciate your loyalty as a KR-KS4 user. Your feedback is important to us as we strive to make Cloud Studio even better. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask. Thank you for choosing Katalon.
