"Cannot save entity: file path length limit exceeded(260.255). You should shorten the name and try again" error when I tried to save generated resources by the Web Recorder

I encountered the error:

I use Katalon Studio 6.1.0 on macOS 10.13.16.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. start “Web Record” in Katalon Studio
  2. specify the target URL to record: http://demoaut.katalon.com
  3. got through the site while entering various input data, to finish
  4. IMPORTANT: you want to choose “Hongkong CURA Healthcare Center” in the <select>, rather than the default “Tokyo CURA Healthcare Cnter”
  5. click “OK” to save the generated resources
  6. Congrat! you get the error dialog.

My investigation:

I looked at the list of Test Objects generated by Web Recorder, and found one with very long name:
select_Tokyo CURA Healthcare Center Hongkong CURA Healthcare Center Seoul CURA Healthcare Center

This name seemed exceeding the limit of file name size (255 characters). I believe this is the cause of error.

My workaround:

I checked another case where I intentionally left the select element as default and did not touch it. This time, no error occurred. :wink:
