Sorry for this very “beginner” question; I’d like to see if, in principle, Katalon can help me in this particular project, before starting to learn more about it:
I have a box (like your broadband router) for which I have built an administrative web interface (LAMP+Bootstrap+Jquery)
After user is playing with all the buttons and fields I provide, the end result is one .ini configuration file that is written on that box.
I would like to automate the testing of this GUI like so: Katalon should select some options, write some values, then click the “save” button. Then, it should get the .ini file, parse it, look for certain parameters, get their values, compare them with an accepted value (or a list of them, a numeric range, …) and only if the result is as expected, test should be considered successful.
(I guess Katalon cannot read files via ssh/ftp so, to offer access to the resulting .ini I can probably expose it via http; even more, I could convert it on-the-fly to something more suitable for Katalon, if needed, like XML or JSON.)
Can this be done in Katalon? I know it can simulate browser interaction but can it also read files, parse them and compare the found values with what is given in the test case?
Thank you in advance for your answer.
