Debugging test case

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

In Katalon Studio 7.0 — the Debugging works slightly differently, and I was having trouble getting the script to stop at the breakpoints.
I clicked/selected the “Debug” button and the launched the test case, but it does not stop at the breakpoint. There is no longer a launch test case in debug mode button.

Anything change in Katalon Studio 7.0, that I need to do extra to enable the stoppage.

I’m in the same boat. I can’t figure out a way to run Katalon in Debug mode. Am I missing something?

Hard to say. It’s working here:

Hi @glen.whelan

The debugging mode is available only in KSE, are you using KSE or the free version o KS ? If you activate Katalon with a business email then you’re automatically granted a 30days trial of KSE.

A post was split to a new topic: KSE Not Showing Debug Mode?

It would be helpful for this article to have a statement at the top saying “A Katalon Studio Enterprise license is required for this debugging process”.


Something as fundamental as debugging a test, they have put it in the paid version. I do not get it :pensive: :weary:

It is not true. I was not given the 30 day trial version. Maybe you should write a letter to the developers and ask them about it?

Did you activate Katalon Studio with a business email (not gmail, outlook etc)? Did you go to the About section to confirm that the version you’re using is not KSE?

I have verified my mail, which is in Gmail. Didn’t know it affected the trial version
