Has Katalon TestCloud changed to not allow file uploading of repository files?

I’m getting an error in a test running through TestOps / TestCloud that passes as expected when running locally. The failure occurs when attempting to upload a file that is part of the repository. This test has previously worked on TestOps / TestCloud and there were no changes to repo between the below two results shown below. Has there been a change to TestOps / TestCloud that now makes this not possible or am I missing something?

Here is a log of the instance where the test was passing:

And here is a log of the instance where the test isn’t passing with the full error log beneath:

Hi @scott.reid ,

Thank you for letting us know. I will discuss internally and get back to you soon.

Can you copy and paste the above pathway into Windows Explorer and locate the file? In other words, is the “File not found” at the location you state?

This issue occurs when running via TestCloud so I don’t have access to the device to check to see whether the file exists. When attempting to navigate to the defined path on my local machine it doesn’t locate anything.

Here is the code that gets the file path and attempts to upload the file:

String fileLocation = RunConfiguration.getProjectDir() + '/Resources/radarLogo.jfif'

WebUI.uploadFile(findTestObject('Pages/Events/EventDetails/AttachmentTab/I_FileUpload'), fileLocation)

And here is the output of that step when the test is run locally:

12-05-2022 09:14:24 AM uploadFile(findTestObject("Pages/Events/EventDetails/AttachmentTab/I_FileUpload"), fileLocation)

Elapsed time: 1.082s

File 'C:/code/git/Katalon.WebUI/Resources/radarLogo.jfif' sent to object: 'Object Repository/Pages/Events/EventDetails/AttachmentTab/I_FileUpload'

I will say, this is a bug.
Previously, when it worked, looks like TestOps was downloading your project to a certain C:\katalon-agent\whatever_tmp folder, which seems to be ok and your file was properly located.

With the new behavior, is resolving the Project Path under C:\Windows\system32\whatever.

If this is true and the Project Path path is correctly resolved, this is a serious issue.
System32 should not be accessible for user data.

Hi,

I think it is probably our bug.

  • Do you @scott.reid have Enterprise license or free account? If you have Enterprise license, please submit a ticket on Katalon Help Center.

  • Can you please let us know your email and ORG ID to better trace log on this issue? If you want to give me you email privately, direct me via thuy.ttran@katalon.com.

Thank you!

I have sent you an email now, thanks for responding!
