Katalon Studio - The one stop solution to software testing

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Now all my test scripts are built with this tool. I don't have to solely rely on Postman to test backend APIs or just Selenium Webdriver to test frontend web applications or Appium to automate mobile applications. I do prepare all my automation test scripts now using Katalon Studio.

Vorteile:

The tool can be used to test the following: 1) API 2) Web Applications 3) Mobile applications Requires minimal programming knowledge to leverage the tool for application testing. Easily integrated with 3rd party applications like Slack. Ready, Handy and FREE plugins available to make testing more effective. Test scripts are interchangeable with Selenium Webdriver.

Nachteile:

Since this tool is somewhat new in the market compared to Selenium Webdriver, hence, its at times difficult to find solutions if a user is stuck in a problem. However, the KS developers tries their level best to find the suitable solution for you as early as possible.

Automation Tools that makes newby Automation Engineer can play around like a pro

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: its very easy tools to use especially if you don't have any experience with automation tool. Pretty easy to install and configure so junior team can easily install and create automation for your service (web,api, and mobile). Basically if you are newby once you try this tools your manager or other peers can see you like a pro.

Vorteile:

- Easy to use because it has feature record and play so no need coding skill to use their feature - Good user interface - No need to worry about web driver like other automation tools - Katalon has feature to support Web , Mobile, API automation testing - It has feature to support Continuous Integration testing tools - It has ability to handle cross browser testing

Nachteile:

- Its use pretty big memory so some times its impact to performance issue (like crash or slow) when run many scenario - only Katalon 7+ version licensed owner, that able to use debugging feature - its limited to Java and Groovy

Good tool for API Automation but not so good for mobile UI

3,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: API Automation - It is good
UI Automation - Not good

Vorteile:

Well organized and easy to use. For APIs its straight forward

Nachteile:

Mobile UI automation is quite tough to setup. Android automation, once we make a script using the a particular mobile using the recorder, we were not able to use it on another model phone. When recording, the ids which the Katalon Studio is creating were changing for the next phone and hence it is not recognizing the on other phones. On the Iphone UI automation, most of the Iphones are not getting recognized. We spent 2 months on doing research and it is pretty inconsistent. Finally we moved just to Appium and manually create the scripts which is the reliable solution from years.

User Friendly software for Automated testing

5,0 vor 2 Monaten

Kommentare: My overall experience is that I could easily begin using the software without training (as a non-developer). I like that it records every step that is taken while navigating throughout an app to create the test scenarios. It makes for the perfect regression testing after a deployment, and before sharing with the client.

Vorteile:

Katalon is user friendly, even for a non-developer. It records the steps within an app to create the test scenarios with ease. You could also manually write the test scenarios, step by step.

Nachteile:

The only con with the software is resolving issues sometimes requires a developer to help fix the test case.

Makes life easy

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: We have managed to fill in the gaps that Postman has left wide open in being able to share reports with teammates, using BDD/Cucumber in API testing, and being able to integrate with Jira. To be able to produce anything similar with postman would require tons of custom Node.js which would be difficult to use for our less technical team members.

Vorteile:

What I like about this software is the fact that I can perform API, Web UI, and Mobile Applications testing all in one suite. I like the fact that the software is based on Eclipse, Java, and Selenium, and comes with all the drivers ready to go. It makes life easier for me who have to deal with a lot of the more technical components, but allows others on our team, who aren't as technical, drag and drop my scripts using the UI provided. I like the fact that the software encourages the Page Object Model and also makes Cucumber much easier.

Nachteile:

You guys are making improvements on your reporting tool, but it used to be a major headache. Other than that, no major headaches.

Front end web testing, with ease

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: We have to deploy software to numerous systems, numerous times per month. Katalon offers the flexibility to run some basic sanity checks to ensure our deployments were successful, without a ton of manual testing hours to verfiy.

Vorteile:

Learning curve is relatively quick and easy to get going with your first few basic tests. There is also a lot of documentation out there if you get stuck on something.

Nachteile:

The design is horrible. It feels like interacting with an app built in the early 2000s. BUT, it works well.

The possibility of analyzing a report should not be KSE's thing.

QA Review of Katalon

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: We've so far had a great experience using Katalon. I'm very excited to introduce it to the company and hope we're able to fully utilize it and keep it around.

Vorteile:

I really love how easy it is to create objects and reuse on multiple sites. The copy/paste/move up/move down options are super easy to use. This makes it easy to maintain our work and make it fun to consistently use.

Nachteile:

Its very difficult to troubleshoot issues. We've started keeping very detailed documentation about which errors may occur and when. If it weren't for that, I'm not confident our QA team would be able to understand how to fix/get past whatever is happening. I would really like to see clearer notes as to why something would be causing an error.

Useful, Time Saver, Easy to Use, Good UI and the BEST In the Industry of Automation

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I have been using it for 2 years. It is great to test both my web and mobile projects in the same environment and support with powerful reports. Otherwise, sending the test results to your email address after the test is completed is amazing in reaching each test step on Katalon Analysis Beta. With the Recoder feature, recording and executing the tests provides great convenience especially for regression tests. The interface is very useful. The program is constantly alive and in development. New versions and improvements are available. Automating mobile testing is easy with the Katalon. In addition to the ready-made keywords in your structure, you can define custom keywords and improve your test capacity. I don't think you can find a tool that's free and with these features, it's a great Katalon!

Vorteile:

With advanced technology, high-quality applications are now inevitable. Manual testing of applications also slows down this rapid process. Considering the different factors such as slowness as well as multi-platform support, cross-browser, responsive design and more, an application's manual test may leave you with unexpected complications and extra efforts. So what do we do then? Remedy Automation Tests: Although the automation test may seem to take more time at the beginning, it has proved to be a more effective approach in the long term in terms of both time and resources since the time of the automation solution. In projects that require intensive regression testing, their utility greatly increases. The ability to re-use the established test scenarios by other teammates is also a big plus. Katalon Studio is a program that you can use to test your Web and Mobile applications. Java-based program can use all the features in a free way. You can start using the program without having any technical knowledge. You can create test cases quickly thanks to the keywords in the program. One thing I would like to mention is the Cross Platform feature. The script you write is a program that allows you to test Cross Platform (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internel, etc.) without writing additional code. I recommend you to use.The interface is useful, but it has a lot of integration with many systems such as JIRA, GIT, KATALON ANALYSIS BETA. Has a very strong reporting structure.

Nachteile:

I don't think it is very useful for web service and API testing. There may be more browser support. Sometimes you feel helpless when you get stuck somewhere when you get an error as community help is not that strong.

Automated Software Testing Tool for non technical software testers

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: We needed a tool that will help us write regression tests within the shortest possible time with the skillset of the testing team and after surveying different tools like it, it was the best choice. We were able to achieve our goal and now we can improve and expand our tests.

Vorteile:

What I like most about Katalon Studio is that you don't need to have programming experience to begin automating software products. It is in my opinion, the best record and play tool out there for test automation.

Nachteile:

It is difficult to use at initial interaction but with regular use of the tool, it gets better. Also, integrating automated tests from Katalon to a CI/CD tool like Jenkins can be a pain and the customer support is not great. You will rely on forums online a lot to sort out the issues you encounter while using the tool. Also, tests are always failing in the headless browser and there isn't enough information to investigate what the problem is.

Great Automation Tool

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: My overall experience with the product is very good, I have explored this tool to the core. it provides you nice reporting format and also you can configure it with jenkins which made my life very easy.

Vorteile:

I would say, this is the best automation tool if you have very least experience on automation testing. with least knowledge on automation, you can start using this tool. It provides you in built functionality to select the xpath of objects which is known as self healing. This feature is a savior if you find difficulty finding xpaths of the objects. It has extensive knowledge base, very nicely maintained by katalon community which will answer most of your questions.

Nachteile:

the only drawback which I have seen so far is that, its kind of slow in performance if your project size is very big.

True the best test automation tool in today testing market

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

It is FREE to use. earlier days testers used to develop frameworks using program language like Java, C sharp and etc. This use to take a huge effort and there was no standard in developing frameworks. because of inconsistency in the framework, the main focus of testers uses to go to maintain the framework rather use it productively. Katalon is completed filled the gap in the test automation world. And also, given much more powerful features accelerate test automation development and its usage. The simplicity of the tool. easy to learning. Productivity. knowledge base. It can integrate all CI and CD tools in the market.

Nachteile:

Integration with Zephyr test management on Jira is missing. This is very much required as per Katalon test users. But not sure whey team have not come up with solutions for this. I hope they come up ASAP.

plug n play automation software with many built in keywords

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: We adopted the tool after I highly spoke of it to higher management as they trust me as our main testing tool on the current project I'm working on. Had a very small learning curve and create custom keywords and scripts to be reused and acting as lego blocks in many tests. Cucumber is documenting all our scenarios.

Vorteile:

It allow to somebody with no or little coding knowledge to get started in test automation with its intuituous interface and built in keywords. Also, with all the integration with various platforms and technologies make it a very easy to integrate tool in the day to day work environment.

Nachteile:

Some glitches still exist in some fields such as soap api calls where not all endpoints are loaded correctly and some improvemetns could be done in order to completely replace soap ui usage in my case. Also the cucumber integration doesn't seem to have all the solution's benefits working correctly such as tags and others that could be added. Finally the Database that is internal could allow to clone, copy, delete or manipulate data easily even the search is not there to make a query for instance.

Katalon - A easy-to-use solution for your automating your tests

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Katalon is very user-friendly as we used it to automate end-to-end-tests. I way fascinated how good it works when I first tried it and build-up a complete test environment for a web application in a very short time. We also integrated it in our CI/CD structure (GitLab) with ease, as Katalon is also dockerized as image available. Generelly speaking: One of the best test automation tool out there currently. But as we needed a solution for distributed testing, we switched from katalon to robot framework. We nevertheless believe, that katalon has a lot of potential to be the next big thing in test automation.

Vorteile:

- As the title suggests, Katalon is very easy-to-use. The UI is very intuitive to use and therefor it doesn't take much time to get started. - Katalon comes with a lot of built-in features like a test recorder, that saves your interaction with a given UI-Interface and creates a test case out of it or a very nice way to save GUI elements and to organize test data via built-in databases. - Katalon is also very easy to use by non-programmers and therefor also a powerful tool for manual testers, to automate repetitive and boring tests. Nevertheless the quality of ones katalon repository will be much higher, when a experienced coder is working with it - but I would even consider this as "criticism", as other tools lack of user-friendly-interface for non-coders completely. - Katalon get's updated frequently and therefor grows in it's features - they just enabled the feature to share custom keywords, which is amazing! - The active community is very helpful and nice and the developers communicate with them a lot and takes inspiration by them.

Nachteile:

- It's fairly young and therefor lacks of features like distributed testing (it still gets a lot of updates). - I had some performance issues with 4K monitors - the tree that is generated when executing a test takes a lot of performance. - The GUI repository is file based -> That means it will throw errors, if the file structure gets too long...

Nachteile:

Still lot of room for improve Documentation should improve Copying variable across call test cases is bit difficult and time consuming Still popularity of tool is not that much that's why less community support compare to selenium

Great working software

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Monotonous movement on the internet. I do the exact same moves online everyday, which makes them automatable.

Vorteile:

I love the fact that I can do web scraping without having to write a million lines of code. I can just get on Katalon and do what I have to do. Customer service is great. They get to my questions right away when I write them on the forum which really helps. Overall great open source product and I'd recommend it to anybody.

Nachteile:

Never really got a good answer on how to handle dynamic ID's. When the ID is static and stays the same, the code remains the same. But when I try to handle dynamic ID's, it will only remember the static one I input. I believe this is more of a user error than anything, but that's one answer that I never got.

Katalon Studio is a test robotization structure which can be utilized for Web, Mobile applications .

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Katalon Studio is an extensive toolset for web and portable application robotization testing. This instrument incorporates a full bundle of amazing highlights that assistance defeat basic difficulties in web UI test robotization, for instance, spring up, iFrame, and hold up time.

Vorteile:

Katalon's principle leeway is that it's anything but difficult to convey and has a more extensive arrangement of reconciliations contrasted with Selenium, the market head. Katalon has double scripting interfaces for clients with various programming aptitudes. This implies analyzers with restricted specialized learning can utilize a less difficult UI that doesn't require composing code. Experts of utilizing Katalon Studio Incorporated with CI/DevOps work process Supports a few sorts of testing Natural investigation dashboard and reports Easy to use GUI Gentle expectation to absorb information + learning materials

Nachteile:

Helpful community, powerful tool!

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Since working on my current automation project, I've been able to log a number of defects and it has been reducing the tedious, repetitive work I do regularly as well as enhanced the quality of our releases. I look forward to learning more about this amazing tool and seeing what's to come.

Vorteile:

I've been working with Katalon Studio for about 8 months now and have been very impressed with it's capabilities, rivaling other tools I've used that cost a boatload in annual license fees. The ability to test both API calls and UI fills a need for the projects we are working on. Continually updated and fantastic support forum. Easy to use in manual or scripted mode, I moved from manual tests to scripted quickly thanks to many great tutorials and thorough documentation!

Nachteile:

The UI can be a smidge clunky at times and test suite organization and report output needs some enhancements. I am sure these areas are probably on their roadmap, however, and will be addressed in the coming year. They are very amenable to feedback.

Free Version - Good for intended purpose

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

I like that is was easy to download/install. The tutorials were good in helping me set up my initial project and test cases. I was brand new to automated testing so speaking from experience, I'd say this is a good tool for people who are new to automated testing and have little scripting experience. The point and click functionality is great because then people who are more on the business side can help get test cases set up and then turn to the developers if they need further help.

Nachteile:

It could have just been the application I was trying to automate, but it seemed like for most objects I had to go in an manually update the xpath. The xpath recorded didn't seem to work. I think this tool is pretty easy to use for basic test cases, but once you get into more complicated test cases it can get very cumbersome. I had good luck setting up the cases for my web application, and once they are set up the run with no problem. However, I had 0 luck setting up the mobile device testing. Again, it could have been the application itself, but there were a lot of extensions I needed to install in order to even get the device to plug in. Once I did, the point and click functionality did not seem as user friendly as the web application point and record functionality.

It's a great concept, but since it is a testing tool, it has TOO many bugs.

1,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: Waste alot of time. A testing tool must be tested more before it is released, or should be marketed as such.

Vorteile:

Easy to record and use. Very intuitive. Basically the interface is a copy of Selenium IDE. Records absolute xpath well.

Nachteile:

I don't even know where to start. It is very messed up at what it is supposed to do basically. It will give you lots of options to use but most of them are either broken or just there for visuals. The idea behind the tool is great but the execution is horrendous. Eg, You can add csv sheets to the recorder but can't actually use it. You can export scripts from the recorder but it wont even work on their own Katalon studio. Many a times we are unable to save recorded scripts and have to rely on copy paste which actually wastes more time. We all have stopped using this product, and are working on IntelliJ's Idea IDE. Much more reliable and so easy to manipulate the script.

My go-to app for Test automation for the web

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: being allergic to super-coding, I find Katalon studio friendly to QAs and data encoders, but can also be flexible enough to support other extensions or code snippets from other libraries.

Vorteile:

Overall, the experience with record-play-customize code-replay has is reminiscent of its more expensive counterpart/s. But overall it's better than the other automation tools i used so far. online help and resources are bountiful. Object repository, test collection, input data files are some of my favorite places to work around with. there are other features which i havent explored yet, like mobile and API automation.

Nachteile:

There are certain customizations that i need with the software which are not yet supported (like full-page web screenshot and data file output), so our team is left to the care of old-school programming gurus on the web. the features that i miss is not a deal-breaker though, work arounds are fine by me for now.
