And that’s a wrap! :partying_face:

Thank you everyone for joining us from everywhere in India from New Delhi, Pune, to Bangalore. It’s a great conversational session where we not only learn about Katalon but also Indian tea culture with some snacks like chicken pakoda, kheer, misal paav, wada pav, masala puri and many more.

The non-stop Q&A session really highlighted the whole meetup, we love listening to our users’ feedback and best practices on how to use our products. And of course, some lucky attendants got their holiday gift cards with our “tricky” kahoot games :joy:.

We would love to dedicate our gratitude to Kalpana Kukreja for her sharings, we learn a lot from Kalpana’s testing journey and how Katalon becomes an integral part of her daily work now. Ultimately, Kalpana has just published her first educational training on our Katalon Academy A Path to Test Automation Success: Dos and Don'ts - Katalon Academy. This is just wholesome to learn if you consider yourself new to this testing path.

Last but not least, please join us on our Katalon Community’s Top Contributor Program and the Kudos Rewards Scheme. These are rewarded programs that enable you to contribute towards a bigger global community.

We’ll be updating this thread with all the answers to your questions during the meetup so stay tuned. And a recording of the meetup will be sent soon to all participants who attended the meetup.

We’d greatly appreciate it if you could spend a few minutes and provide us with your honest feedback by filling in this short survey, so that we could bring you even better events in the future! Until then, namaste! :sparkling_heart:

Q: How to handle Saleforce Lightning Web Element which has dynamic object?

A: Lightning uses dynamic objects which change automatically after page refresh. KS tool has four selection methods: XPath, Attributes, CSS, and Images. Suppose it is detected by the KS tool via Spy/Recorder feature with attributes whose value is dynamic. In that case, you can switch to other methods such as XPath or CSS and update the selected locator to be unique and identified.

There is also another Katalon way to handle parameterized objects with parameterizing test objects, you can update test objects’ locators dynamically by using either local or global variables.

Q: Can you give some more details about visual AI testing being introduced by Katalon? Is it going to be a whole new set of solutions or will be combined with some existing katalon solution?

A: Katalon AI Visual Testing adds additional layers of automated, intelligent comparisons to highlight crucial changes to the application’s layout and/or content.

You can easily add AI Visual Testing to existing Studio tests with keywords to capture screenshots and automated baseline collection during test runs.

Q: How do I choose which execution tool- runtime engine or testcloud is correct for my organization?

A: Katalon offers Katalon Runtime Engine, which is the test execution add-on of Katalon Studio. KRE allows you to execute automation tests in CLI mode. It can be used in a variety of scenarios, such as scheduling your tests, integrating with CI/CD systems, or bundling your tests to execute in virtual containers like Docker. Read more about its use case here.

On the other hand, TestCloud is a cloud-based runtime environment, ​​allowing you to test on any available browser, version, OS, or combination of the three. With TestCloud, QA engineers and testers are not limited to testing on available local environments or waiting for IT to deploy the ones they need. Read more on our website.
