Since i upgraded to 6.1.3, i’ve been having a lot of trouble working with existing test cases.
I used to start recording a case then save the progress and the next day use the web-recorder Play option to restore my application to the state i left it in previously.
This used to work correctly, even tho there are some annoyances with how the recording works etc… Now tho i have a lot of problems.
The major one is the fact that sometimes Katalon will not save any changes i’ve made after the playback finishes. The recorder part works, it captures events and objects, you can rename them etc as normal, but when you click OK you get to pick where to import your newly captured objects and then nothing happens. You can select a folder, click OK, use all the 3 options (Overwrite, duplicate, whatever) and all it does is return you back to the recorder. The only option you have is to hit Cancel and lose all the work. It doesn’t even return an error or anything at all, it just does nothing.
Often times the chrome driver seems to be bugging out, and it only works the first time you “play” something. Then if you have to stop it, close the window or something like that and then re-run it, you get a blank chrome window and it takes about 5-10 minutes to produce this:
I noticed that sometimes, not always tho, the chrome driver task remains active in the Windows Task Manager, multiple copies of it even. I’ve reported a similar bug long time ago, and it was fixed. Seems it’s back now and it’s actually worse since it makes it impossible to use the tool at all. You have to basically close everything up, check your task manager, kill all the chrome drivers if any, reload it all and hope for the best.
