I made a project to reproduce the problem and published it on GitHub
How to reproduce the problem
- open the project with your Katalon Studio
- open the test case named
- click the
- you will find a variable named
STRATEGYis predefined. It has type of String. It has the default value of
Problem 1 : changed the default value, but the new value is not displayed
I wanted to change the default value of the
STRATEGY variable from
1hourAgo to a new value
In the Variables tab, at the row of
STRATEGY , in the input field of Default value , I typed in the new value
last . See the screenshot:
Then I moved the cursor out of the input field. I expected that the new value
last to be displayed in the field, of course. Howerver, to my biggest surprise, the input field displayed the old value
I thought I need to retype the new value, so I moved the cursor in to the input field of Default value,
last came up! The input field knew the new value
last but does not show it up. Why? I do not find any rational explanation for this behavior.
Problem 2 :
Unable to save part when tried to save the change
I thought the new value
last is accepted (though it is not shown up). So I wanted to save the settings into disk. I clicked the Save All button. Then a Error dialog came. It said “Unable to save part”.
I was unable to save the change at all.
