Bug in Documentation


#1

Go to https://docs.katalon.com/display/KD/Execute+a+test+suite#Executeatestsuite-VariableBinding

**Bind Variable to Test Data **section point 5) says "In the above example, the global variable Username will look up to the column Username of the test data file “New Excel Data” during execution. "

This is incorrect. It should be
“In the above example, the public variable Username will look up to the column username of the test data file “New Excel Data_” _during execution”.

Because global variables dont show up in the variable binding list am I correct?

Hello Shiju,

Thank you for your feedback. I have double checked and the documentation is correct. Public variable is Global variable in Katalon Studio.

Let us know if you have any other concerns.

Thank you for using Katalon Studio,
Liam

@“Liam B” in the above statement you are saying “Public variable is Global variable in Katalon Studio.” but the documentation in the beow link contradicts that
https://docs.katalon.com/display/KD/Variable+Types#VariableTypes-Publicvariables. In this link the words “Local Variable” and “Public Variable” are used interchangeably. So it’d be great if any one word is used than using both.

Therefore my first finding still holds good?
