SessionNotCreatedException chrome version must be between 70 and 73

What controls the required Chrome version in Selenium in Katalon? My tests stopped working after Chrome updated itself. This is obviously not an ideal situation.

Caused by: org.openqa.selenium.SessionNotCreatedException: session not created: Chrome version must be between 70 and 73

Chrome is at version 74:

Hi @david.mossakowski,

Please refer to my post: Unable to Open Chrome Driver Browser

Thanks! I have done that and it is working but this is not a sustainable strategy in CI environment. We have a windows machine that is used for builds and its Chrome version is upgraded automatically so how do we keep up with this using Katalon?


Any updates on the above? We too have a Windows machine that updates the Chrome browser automatically. Is there a way to check the version, then decide which web driver to use?


We added an argument to our CI build to update the chrome driver automatically:
–config -webui.autoUpdateDrivers=true
