This post really helpfull. Thank you soo much


I’m new to these languages and this application, so forgive me if some of the below is nonsense/unnecessary.

For others who may still be having an issue, I believe my issue was that I had previously tried to implement the plugin from the Katalon Store and it was somehow conflicting with my new keyword (maybe I was using the same keyword). This is how I followed this tutorial and resolved the error I don’t see mentioned above:

  • go to Katalon Store and uninstall “Upload” plugin.
  • remove any upload step from script or manual execution (you replace it at the end of these steps)
  • remove any custom package and keyword you attempted to create from Keywords in project explorer
  • maybe cleanup project
  • restart Katalon Studio
  • recreate new package in keywords
  • recreate new keyword in that package
  • refresh Keywords and Project (not sure if they are two different functions)
  • add custom keyword back to test case (this time it should look closer to the tutuorial)

Thanks @emine for the guide. I would like to see some more images though, especially showing what manual and script execution window looks like after it’s configured correctly and without tooltips.
