This guide shows you how to execute a dynamic test suite in Katalon Studio.
Modify execution information of a dynamic test suite
Before executing a dynamic test suite, you might want to modify the execution information, including timeout, retry, and email recipient list for test execution reports.
You can specify additional configurations for test suite execution by expanding the Execution Information section.
In the Implicit timeout section, you can decide the timeout period. This is how long Katalon Studio waits for a page to load. Choose one of the following options:
|Use default||Use the predefined value set in Project > Settings > Execution > Default wait for element timeout (in seconds).|
|User define (in seconds)||Set a custom waiting time. Input a value in seconds.|
Retry after executing all
Katalon allows you to rerun test cases in a failed test suite execution to identify flaky tests.
To do so, in the Retry after executing all text field, set the desired number of retry times. By default, this is set to
Choose one of the following options:
- Retry all executions: Retry all test cases when the test suite fails.
Retry failed executions only: Retry only failed test cases when the test suite fails.
For example, when a test suite execution fails, we want to rerun failed test cases in that test suite twice.
In the Retry after executing all checkbox, we input
2 in the text field, then we choose the Retry failed executions only option.
In this case, the test suite is executed three times in total. The first one is the main execution; the latter two are the retried executions when the first execution fails.
Katalon automatically generates reports after each test execution.
Execute a dynamic test suite
- Open the dynamic test suite.
- From the main toolbar, click Run.
The test case is executed with the default browser defined in Project > Settings > Execution > Default execution.
Alternatively, you can choose the environment in the dropdown list next to Run.
The Job Progress bar is triggered automatically to show the progress while your test case/test suite is being executed.
You can also run the dynamic test suite in console mode. For detailed instructions on test execution in console mode, you can refer to this document: Command Syntax (Command-line/Console Mode Execution).
