I have been using Selenium IDE to create some tests and test suites.
Now I wonder if I can import these test scripts to Katalon Studio, modify and expart them to Selenium IDE.
As it looks it is not really possible.

Even if there es an ‘Import Selenium IDE Project’ in Katalon Studio it gives some errors.
So the errors have to be solved first.
But even if the errors are solved, how can the file be exported and used in Selenium IDE?

It looks like Selenium IDE is saving the files as JSON as ‘.side’ files.
Selenium IDE can just open files in that format.
I can export in Java etc., but that files can not be imported back to Selenium IDE. They can just be used in eclipse.

Katalon recorder can not even open files from Katalon Studio.

So it looks like I have to decide if I want to go with Katalon Studio, Recorder or Selenium IDE?

Hi @gunnar.polte,
I am a fellow mate here, searching for the same what you asked. It would be nice if you let me know the answer if you find the way to import a script to Katalon recorder.
Thanks in advance!
