[iOS] How to config Katalon with XCUITest automation

After resolving problem “Can not start the application”, we (my team and I) got another problems:

  1. On MacOS Sierra, we have to run Katalon by terminal
  2. iTunes upgrade broke UIAutomation (https://github.com/appium/appium/issues/6857) -> Resolved by running `sudo chmod -R 777 /var/db/lockdown`
  3. We have to use Appium 1.6.0 hence XCode 8.1. And Apple has removed the older UIAutomation framework, so we use XCUITest automation.
So, how we can config to run with XCUITest automation?


Hi Katalon, we still have with the same problem

Katalon 4.4.0

XCode 8.2.1

Hi Hien,
To adapt with new Appium 1.6 , we have to replace our core mobile to utilize XCUITest automation.
It’s not a quick fix at all unless you don’t use Mac OS Sierra for iOS testing. From our side, it will take time to resolve this

Also, the issue with opening Katalon Studio has been fixed in version 4.2. You don’t need to open it from terminal by using Katalon Studio 4.2
