CMD execution

I am running tests on Katalon studio using the remote Web option that I setup in project>settings.

I set the remote web server to point to CrossBrowser with the required parameters. This works fine when running a test in Katalon studio. I can see the results on

When I try to run via Terminal using the Build CMD options for remote:

  1. There is only an option for remote web driver URL and no parameters.
  2. When I execute the command in terminal I get the following message,

!ENTRY org.eclipse.core.resources 2 10035 2017-05-03 12:23:45.158

!MESSAGE The workspace exited with unsaved changes in the previous session; refreshing workspace to recover changes.

Is it possible to run tests from CMD on a remote browser farm like CrossBrowserTesting or BrowserStack ?



Hi Deane,

I would recommend changing you’re password because the first part of the remoteWebDriverUrl displays the credentials.

Thank you, Vinh Nguyen.

Upon re-checking, looks like this is an issue from Katalon Studio. We will apply a fix for it soon.


I use a Mac so in terminal I cd to my applications and then execute the following command :
./Katalon\ --args -runMode=console -consoleLog -projectPath="/Users/deane.rousseau/Katalon Studio/Photo Mosaic/Photo Mosaic.prj" -reportFolder="/Users/deane.rousseau/Katalon Studio/Photo Mosaic/Reports" -reportFileName=“report” -retry=0 -testSuitePath=“Test Suites/Photo Mosaic” -browserType=“Remote” -remoteWebDriverUrl=“” -remoteWebDriverType=Selenium

Hi there,

Can you provide me the command line you use in this case?
