Create your first automation script

Broadly speaking, there are usually two steps to create an automate scenario in Katalon Recorder: 1. Add commands to interact with websites 2. Add verify or assert commands to make sure your test case follows the correct flow.

Add commands to interact with websites

To get started, use the Recorder to automatically create a test case:
  • Click on the Record button.

  • Switch to the currently active tab.

  • Start interacting with your website.

  • Switch to Katalon Recorder.

  • Click the Stopbutton.

You should see your interactions are recorded as a test case.

Add verify or assert commands

There are two ways to add verify or assert commands.

After the recording of a test case

If you just have just recorded a test case:
  • Add a new test step through the toolbar item.

  • Type verify orassert in the Command field of the new test step.

  • Choose from the list of available suggested commands (for exampleverifyElementPresent).

  • Click on the buttonSelect a target element for the current commandlocated next to the Target field of the new test step.

  • Switch to the currently active tab.

  • Select an element on the page.

  • Switch back to Katalon Recorder.

You should see the newly created assert or verify command for the target element.

During the recording of a test case

If you are recording a test case:
  • Right-click on the target element.

  • Choose a command from the context menu item Katalon Recorder (Selenium tests generator).
