Custom Fields and Tags

Custom fields & tags are great tools to create and label meta-data to your Katalon test artifacts such as test case, test run schedule, and test execution. You can create as many attributes to your test entities as you need, then categorize, organize or filter them with ease throughout the testing cycle on Katalon Platform.

Custom field is a pair of key and value meta-data that you can assign to then differentiate among your test entities, for example: testPriority: High, or, scriptLanguage: Java.

Tag is a single-word string value (not including a white-space), similar to a hashtag, that you can assign to tests entities and query with them later on.

Custom fields can only be created in Configurations section of Katalon Platform, while Tags can be created on-the-move in the test case detail, test run detail and test result detail module.
