Targeting a specific web server for testing

Hello, everyone,
Presently my company has eight web servers in its Production environment.
If I want to verify that deployment, right now it’s a manual effort to set a specific server IP in local HOST file, and then perform the validation.

Is there a way to automate this in Katalon? Ideally I’d like to have a test case that could target a specific server, based on IP address.

Hope this call for help is clear. Thank you for your time.

Have a look at “Execution Profile”

Do you want an example? Then have a look at this:

This demo shows you how to:

  1. You create a GlobalVariable named hostname in the default Execution Profile. You set a valid DNS host name or a IP address to the GlobalVariable.hostname of the default profile.
  2. You can create multiple profiles. If you have 8 web servers to test, then you want to create 8 profiles. One profile for each machine. You want to create GlobalVariable named hostname in each profiles. You want to set valid DNS host name or IP addresses. create profile with host name
  3. You create a test case which opens browser and let it nagivate to the URL refering to the GlobalVarialbe.hostname. See the test case source at
  4. When you run the test case, you have a option to choose a Profile to apply to the test case execution. In other words, you can switch the hostname with the value specified in the Profile you chosen. In the top right corner of Katalon Studio UI you find a button to choose Profile. choose profile to apply


Create a Test Case that relies on an Excel worksheet for its data…

Enter the IP Address for your URL (, into the first column of your Excel Worksheet…

Enter 8 rows for each of your eight Production servers…

This may result in Certificate errors that will need to be resolved, depending on how your network is set up…
