Katalon recorder stops after getting JSON response from the helper tool

Im using the recorder helper tool to update two fields into a csv file on the local machine for each row processed in the csv file in the data driven tab.

Here is the test case definition:

> loadvars   ||  trips.csv
> open         ||                   https://d.u.com/p3/payments/v2/trips/${tripid}
> WaitForPageToLoad   ||  1000
> storeText  ||   //body/div/div/div/div/div/div/div/div[2]/div/div[2]/div/div[2]/div[2]     || miles
> pause  ||     2500
> open  ||  http://localhost:18910/execute?cmd=powershell c:%5cusers%5chp%5cMyScripts%5clogmiles.ps1 "${tripid} ${miles}"
> endloadvars

Here is the powershell script:

param ($tripid, $miles)
  "$tripid,$miles" | 
                Out-File -FilePath c:\users\hp\downloads\tripmileage.csv -Append -Encoding ascii
write-host "$tripid,$miles inserted" 

Here is the output from the java runtime:

2020-06-11 14:02:39.292  INFO 8288 --- [io-18910-exec-1] c.k.k.h.c.ExecutionCommandController     : Process the command: 'powershell c:\users\hp\MyScripts\logmiles.ps1 "b3029bcb-e14a-429d-a19d-82b76a6aa052 4.2 mi"'
2020-06-11 14:02:39.293  INFO 8288 --- [io-18910-exec-1] c.k.k.h.c.ExecutionCommandController     : The actual command is: 'cmd.exe /c powershell c:\users\hp\MyScripts\logmiles.ps1 "b3029bcb-e14a-429d-a19d-82b76a6aa052 4.2 mi"'
2020-06-11 14:02:39.703  INFO 8288 --- [io-18910-exec-1] c.k.k.h.c.ExecutionCommandController     : Output:
b3029bcb-e14a-429d-a19d-82b76a6aa052,4.2 inserted

Here is how the browser after the open.

What happens is the process just stops after receiving the local host command output. If I go to the browser and hit the back button (taking it back to the page of the first open) it will execute the next row in the data directory. So if I keep hitting the back button it will continue processing. I have over 5000 rows to process im not going to go and hit the back button 5000 times. lol.

What am I doing wrong? I feel like its something simple. There is just very very little documentation on this stuff which is extremely frustrating.

Thanks in advance for any help someone can give me.



I figured it out!!. The fix was to run it as an async http request via the runScript command.

here is the code I used to send async:

var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
xhr.open("GET", "http://localhost:18910/execute?cmd=powershell c:%5cusers%5chp%5cMyScripts%5clogmiles.ps1 ${tripid} ${miles}", true);
xhr.onload = function (e) {
  if (xhr.readyState === 4) {
    if (xhr.status === 200) {
    } else {
xhr.onerror = function (e) {
xhr.timeout = 2000;
