Unable to use global variable for URL with 6.3.1


Within my API post requests I have used a global variable for the URL; however since installing Katalon 6.3.1 I am receiving a ‘class.java.net.URL’ when posting a request from the object repository and I am seeing a ‘java.net.UnknownHostException: class java.net.URL’ when running a test suite that calls the object.

Hardcoding the URL within the object resolves the issue; however to ensure flexibility across environments, Katalon must restore the ability for the global variable to be used for a URL.

For clarity, attached is a screenshot of how the object was previously configured:


Hi @Daniel_Wilkinson,

Please check for update to v6.3.2. We are sorry for this issue.
