Default failure handling behavior

Follow these steps to define the default behavior for failure handling to be applied across your project:

  1. From Katalon Studio menu, access Project > Settings > Test Case


  2. Select the preferred option for the default behavior of Failure Handling. Click OK when you're done.

    The selected option will be applied to new test steps only. For the steps already existed in your test cases, their failure handling option will not be affected by this change. Thus, you may need to update them manually.

Override failure handling behavior

You can override the default failure handling behavior for each test step manually in either Manual view or Scripting view of test case. 

In Manual View

  1. Right click on the step that you want to change the failure handling behavior to trigger its context menu


  2. Select the preferred failure handling option and save your test case.  

In Scripting View

For all built-in keywords in Katalon Studio, you can add FailureHandling as the last parameter. When editing a keyword in Scripting mode, use any of these option to specify its behavior.

FailureHandling.STOP_ON_FAILURE
FailureHandling.CONTINUE_ON_FAILURE
FailureHandling.OPTIONAL

For example:

 

  • No labels
