Step-by-Step Guide to Troubleshoot Katalon ‘Run from here’ not working

Hi folks, we have found that the following works for our QA team. Note the ‘Run from here’ feature ONLY displays for active chromedriver.exe processes.
Occasionally Katalon’s ‘Run from here’ feature does NOT work when triggering test case runs.
To correct this issue, do the following:

  • Stop and Start Katalon, (note that ‘chromedriver.exe’ processes are NOT stopped).
  • Open the Project where ‘Run from here’ is NOT working.
  • Click ‘Tools’ > ‘Web’ > ‘Terminate running WebDrivers’ > ‘Finish’.
  • Click ‘Project’ > ‘Close and Clean up’.
  • Click ‘File’ > ‘Clean up’.
  • Stop and Start Katalon.
  • Open a different project.
  • Click ‘Project’ > ‘Close and Clean up’.
  • Click ‘File’ > ‘Clean up’.
  • Open the project where the issue was first seen.
  • Attempt to use ‘Run from here’ again.

Hopefully it works, if not try again.


I would also recommend deleting the below folder:



Awesome guys! Thank you for your sharing and it will help a lot of other community members. Appreciate your contribution. :wink:

All, I would NOT recommend deleting the metadata folder as I found that ALL of my test case collection links were lost along with most of my configuration changes. Fortunately I had backed up my metadata folder, so I was able to recover my work… I would NOT recommend this without first making a backup of your current metadata folder.
