Unique capabilities

Unique capabilitiesDescriptionSupported Katalon Studio versions
Application Under Test (AUT) Testing CombinationKatalon Studio allows combining multiple application types (Web UI, API, Mobile & Desktop) in one project and execution flow. You can test this capability with our GitHub sample project here.v7.0.0+
Dual-editor interfaceKatalon Studio test scripts are interchangeable between two interfaces: manual and scripting editors. This enables a team with a mixed level of automation testing skills to work effectively and efficiently in the same project.v7.0.0+
Self-healingThe Self-healing mechanism is to tackle the issue of broken locators during execution to reduce the test maintenance effort. Learn more.v7.6.0+
Smart WaitThe Smart Wait function tells the WebDriver to wait for the web page to become static before performing any operations. This reduces the risk of test failures caused when the page hasn't fully loaded. Learn more.v7.0.0+
Time CapsuleThis capability enables users to restore the Application Under Test to the state before the test failed, for example if locators did not find the expected Web UI objects. Learn more.v7.8.0+
