Thanks for the reply.
I tried both the ways .With custom chrome, I am able to add the extension but that is not getting enabled. How to enable it?

Are you able to install the CORS extension in the browser invoked by Katalon (via automation) ?

No, not able to invoke via automation.

1. Firtsly Dowload the CORS .CRX file using the below chrome extension.

2. In Katalon project, create a folder named “ChromeExtension” and paste the CORS.crx as below


3. Create Keyword as mentioned below.

4. Call the Keyword.


Custom Keyword Code

import com.kms.katalon.core.webui.driver.DriverFactory as DriverFactory
import com.kms.katalon.core.configuration.RunConfiguration as RunConfiguration

public class ChromeCapabilities {

	public static void enableExtension (String url){

		System.setProperty('', DriverFactory.chromeDriverPath)

		ChromeOptions options = new ChromeOptions()

		'Install Chrome extensions - at runtime'
		options.addExtensions(new File(RunConfiguration.getProjectDir()+'/ChromeExtension/CORS.crx'))

		DesiredCapabilities capabilities = new DesiredCapabilities()

		capabilities.setCapability(ChromeOptions.CAPABILITY, options)

		'Setting Proxy '
		capabilities.setCapability('chrome.switches', Arrays.asList('--proxy-server='))

		WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver(capabilities)




Tried this , again the extension got added but not enabled by default.
