Finding it hard to meet some certification criteria? Then read this topic!

Since the launch of the certification program, we have assisted many users (through emails and other means) with how to meet certain requirements. The following requirements are the ones which many users had a hard time with:

  • Test case creations (for practitioner level)
  • Test runs on Katalon TestCloud through TestOps (for practitioner level)
  • Katalon TestCloud Tunnel usage (for expert level)
  • Test run executions on TestOps agents using Katalon Runtime Engine (for professional level)
  • Using built-in keywords in Katalon Studio to automate different types of testing (for professional and expert levels)

In this topic, we will show you how to meet these requirements.

1. Test case creations

Every time you create a new test case in Katalon Studio, it will count as one test case creation.

There are multiple ways to create test cases, but please note that if you use test case samples from a project sample or import tests into your Katalon Studio, it won’t count.

2. Test runs on Katalon TestCloud through TestOps

Here are the steps to meet this requirement:

Once you schedule or run your selected tests in TestCloud environments, you should be directed to the Test Run List page. You should see your test runs on the screen like this.

Please note that it takes around two days to reflect the data on your certification-update dashboard.

3. Katalon TestCloud Tunnel usage

A TestCloud tunnel allows you to execute tests in a private domain. Here are the steps to meet this requirement:

For video tutorials, refer to the last lesson in this course on Katalon Academy.

After scheduling to run tests with a TestCloud tunnel, you will be redirected to the Test Run List page. You should see the tunnel icon next to your test run.

Please note that it takes around two days to reflect the data on your certification-update dashboard.

4. Test run executions on TestOps agents using Katalon Runtime Engine

The steps to meet this requirement are similar to the ones for test runs with TestCloud environments:

Once you schedule or run your selected tests with an agent, you should be directed to the Test Run List page. You should see “Test agent” for the test environment.

Please note that it takes around two days to reflect the data on your certification-update dashboard.

5. Using built-in keywords in Katalon Studio to automate different types of testing

In Katalon Studio, there are a lot of built-in keywords for you to use for different types of testing (web, mobile, API, and desktop). Simply go to the Keyword Browser to view them.

Here are the steps to meet this requirement:

  • Use the keywords for different types of testing (web, mobile, etc.) in your test cases. You can drag and drop or simply type them into the Manual or Script Mode.

  • Run these test cases. Otherwise, you cannot meet this requirement.

That were the five certification requirements that many users had a hard time achieving. Hopefully, with our guide, you can easily meet them. Have a nice day!

Great tips!

My only problem with actually completing the certificates is that the last checks I need requires a license to complete. This would have been possible for me with the trial license, but unfortunately that has expired last year before the certificate program was made. The only check I have left that does not require a license is the Visual Testing Checkpoints as far as I know
