Since v5.3, Katalon Studio has allowed users to set default Web Locator in Project Setting > Test Design > Web Locator.
This setting helps user eliminate the repetitive tasks of check/un-check locators for each captured objects while recording or spying the application under test. All selected locators in this settings will be applied to all captured objects in Record and Spy Web.
Custom locators can be added to the list. Pre-selected locators are recommended by Katalon team.
- By default, tag property will be selected. In some cases you really don't want this behavior, so you can change this by:
- Add a new property called tag and deselect it
When you spy or record test steps, any object having this tag property will not be used by default
- Working with Angular pages, there are two properties called ng-model and ng-pattern you would like to use it by default. Added these two properties to the list of current Web Locators.
These selected properties will be checked by default when you Spy or Record your test steps
