Environment (for Web testing): Docker image

Steps to reproduce Following the instructions for the simple use case in the

docker run -t --rm -v "$(pwd)":/katalon/katalon/source katalonstudio/katalon -browserType="Chrome" -retry=0 -statusDelay=15 -testSuitePath="Test Suites/TS_RegressionTest"

Expected Behavior: Katalon tests run

Actual Behavior: Katalon throws an error

Additional Details


If I am reading the error output correctly, is attempting to use the project folder instead of the project file when running Katalon.

I believe that this can be resolved by adding a command along the lines of:

project_prj_file=$(find $project_dir -name "*.prj"

around line 27 and then changing the last part of building the command to:


I attempted to fork the project and correct it locally on my machine, but ran into a number of issues attempting to build the docker image (likely because I’m using WSL on Windows 10).

I extracted the file, added my suggested code changes above, and then re-added it to the container using an overlay with docker config create --template-driver golang katalon-execute ./katalon/ (and some other docker magic) and now it all works like a charm.

I’ve also reproduced everything on a VM running Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS x86_64 so that increases my confidence that this is the root cause of the error.

i saw latest docker image seems has the updated line
you may check.

Yes, thank you. I submitted PR#69 which got merged into master on July 4, 2019.

I see. Thank you for this. I raised question in community as one of my test suite failed and throws file or path not found error.
Could be this is the root cause. Glad to know from you.
