Test cases table
The summary information of all executed iterations done in the test suite is displayed here. Each time when a test case is executed with a test data row is considered an iteration.
You can filter reports based on their execution status:
|Passed||Show only iterations which are passed.|
|Failed||Show only iterations which are failed.|
|Error||Show only iterations having errors.|
|Incomplete||Show only incomplete iterations.|
|Skipped||Show only skipped iterations.|

Test suite collection report
You can view reports directly inside each test suite collection page. Test suite collection reports are only available for Katalon Studio Enterprise users.
After executing a test suite collection, to see the test suite collection report, go to the Result tab.
|ID||The ID of the executed test suite in Katalon Studio.|
|Environment||The environment in which the test suite is executed.|
|Status||Information about whether the execution is completed or not.|
|Failed Tests / Total||Total test cases in the test suite and the number of failed test cases, if any.|
|Test Suite Details||Shows test suite reports, see above: Test suite reports.|
Report History is only available for Katalon Studio Enterprise users.
Once a test suite/test suite collection finishes its execution, a report is automatically generated and stored in the Reports folder.
The report is named with the following naming convention: YYYYMMDDHHmmss_, corresponding to the date and time of the start of the execution.
Export reports to other formats
For the purpose of sharing, you can export reports of test suites into other formats such as HTML, CSV, PDF, and JUnit.
From version 8.5.5 onwards, Katalon Studio automatically generates HTML reports for both test suite and test suite collection.
From version 7.0.0 onwards, Katalon Studio automatically generates JUnit reports for both test suite and test suite collection.
For Katalon Studio - Platform Edition version 8.5.0 onwards:
- Running in debug mode does not automatically generate basic reports (HTML, PDF, CSV). With the debug mode, Katalon Studio - Platform Edition only exports the JUnit report.
- Running in debug mode does not automatically send execution results to Katalon TestOps.
- You cannot manually export reports for debug mode.
Automatically generate reports
From version 8.5.5, you can automatically generate HTML reports for test suite collection.
For version before 8.5.5, select HTML option only generate HTML reports for test suites.
The CSV and PDF options are available for test suite reports only.
In Project > Settings > Plugins > Report, select your preferred format for the reports generated after each test suite execution.
Execute a test suite and observe the Log Viewer after the test execution completes. The generated reports are the same as the settings you have configured above.
You can view the generated reports in
<project_folder>\\Reports\\<execution_folder> after the test execution finishes.

Manually export reports
Get generated reports location at runtime
To retrieve current generated reports location, you can use the sample code below:
You can also retrieve other information through the RunConfiguration package, see: RunConfiguration.
- K-Lite Codec is recommended to play the Katalon Studio test execution videos. You can download K-Lite Codec on the Codec Guide website: K-Lite Codec.
- Support execution at the test suite level.
- Support all browsers except for Remote, Headless, Kobiton, and Custom. For remote or headless browsers, it's recommended to use Katalium Server to view captured sessions.
- Recording parallel execution is NOT supported yet.
Debugging can be time-consuming and challenging for many automation testers. Katalon Studio helps solve this problem by supporting you with the ability to capture test execution via video format. You can enable the video capturing feature in Project Settings.
Follow the steps below to see how to work with Katalon Studio video capturing feature:
After creating a test suite in Katalon Studio, select Project > Settings > Execution. Check the Enable Video Recorder during execution option.
By default, Katalon Studio only captures Failed test cases. However, you can select options to capture only the Passed/Failed test cases or both.
Video settings can be specified based on the preferences of users. Katalon Studio recommends AVI (
.avi) format and low quality to save disk space. The higher the video quality is, the bigger the file size is.
- Video format: AVI (
.avi) or MOV (
- Video quality: Low; Medium or High
- Video format: AVI (
After executing a test suite, navigate to the Result tab. You can view the list of test cases in the test cases table with its video attached accordingly.
To play the video, click on the play icon in the Video column. Test steps descriptions are embedded as a subtitle.
By watching how the automated test was executed, the testing team can identify exactly where the test failed. Thus, time and resources are managed more efficiently and effectively.
