You can modify extra Desired Capabilities while executing a test in Katalon Studio. Here is the list of all execution modes that support modifying Desired Capabilities.

SettingsDescription

Project > Settings > Execution > Custom

Define a custom option for execution along with its Desired Capabilities.

Project > Settings > Execution > Default > WebUI > Chrome (Firefox, IE, Safari, Edge)

Define Desired Capabilities for local execution using Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari or Edge.

Project > Settings > Execution > Default > WebUI > Remote Web

Define Desired Capabilities for execution on a remote web server.

Project > Settings > Execution > Default > Mobile > Android (iOS is only available in macOS)

Define Desired Capabilities for execution with Android and iOS devices.

Project > Settings > Execution > Default > WebUI > Headless

Define Desired Capabilities for execution with a headless instance.


Adding a Desired Capability is similar across those settings (except for Custom execution). The step to add a property for execution are as following: 

  1. Click the Add button of command toolbar above the Desired Capabilities list.
  2. A new row will be added to the list.
  3. Provide the name of the property that you’d like to configure. Refer to here to know which properties of each web browser are supported by Selenium. For the desired capabilities to be used with Appium, refer to this list.
  4. Specify the type of the property by clicking and expanding the drop-down under the Type column.
  5. Define value for the property. Refer to Value Types for details regarding how to input value for different types.
