My requirement is to upload Excel file (xlsx) onto application per requirement. I ran my code, it was passed with no error in Katalon Studio but my web app throw error message - Name has an issue: Please select file. (images shown below)

And file was not uploaded as expected but my Katalon Studio shown green mark (OK). I double-checked my uploaded filename again and again, nothing different.

Can you please try Failure handling and verifyElementPresent when you upload file? If possible, can you try upload by Drag and Drop?

Hi @Elly_Tran , thanks for your reply. I did test with verifyElementPresent / verifyElementVisible but still not working.

By the way, my application is not support Drag and Drop for file uploading. I did testing this once.

I found that I’m incorrect choosing locator, then application return that error message " [Name has an issue: Please select file".

Thanks a lot for your help @Elly_Tran
