Test creation is the activity when you write different steps to conduct a test.
In this phase, you are mostly working with Katalon Studio - the test creation IDE of the Katalon Platform.
Before you begin, make sure that:
You already have a Katalon account. Sign up at our official website: Sign up.
You already downloaded and installed Katalon Studio. See Installation overview.
You already belonged to an Organization on Katalon Platform. See Create Organization and Projects.
You already created a project on Katalon TestOps. See Create a project on Katalon TestOps.
- Start by checking out the test planning activity beforehand. See Introduction to test planning.
Once everything is set, it’s time to explore the power of the Katalon Platform.
Set up your projects in Katalon Studio
First, open your project in Katalon Studio. See Manage test projects.
Depending on your projects, you can customize the workspace and configure your project accordingly. See Set up your workspace.
Here are things that you can configure in your projects:
Set up desired capabilities. See Introduction to desired capabilities.
Integrate your projects with other tools. See Supported Integrations.
Once your project is ready, you can create your first test case. There are two approaches to creating test scripts in Katalon Studio:
Playback and Debug your test case
After you created your first test case, you can playback the test to see if it works as expected.
If there is any error with your test case, you can use the debug mode of Katalon Studio.
Organize your test scripts in test suites and test suite collections
In Katalon Studio, you can group relevant test scripts together into test suites and test suite collections for certain testing goals. See Manage test cases in test suites and Manage test suites in Katalon Studio.
That's the basic cover of the test creation activity. You then can execute your test, view reports and maintain your tests in the Katalon Platform. See also:
Katalon Platform also has a lightweight extension for record and playback. Explore this extension here: Katalon Recorder overview.
