Manage test suites in Katalon TestOps

You can create, update and manage test suites in Katalon TestOps.

  2. Go to Test Management > Test Suite.
  3. Click on + Test Suite.

  6. Select a test case, then click Add to add it to your test suite. You can only add one test case at a time.
  7. Optional: If you have added several test cases and you want to switch to a different script repository, click Remove to manually remove the added test cases first. Once all test cases have been removed, the Script Repository section is enabled again. You can then select a different script repository.
  8. Click Create.
A test suite is created in Katalon TestOps. The newly-created test suite is stored in the TestOps folder under the relevant script repository. The TestOps folder is a default system-generated folder to store the test suite you have created in TestOps.

TestOps folder

Warning:
  • Katalon TestOps has a refresh feature where you can sync the latest version of your Git repository to TestOps. To ensure the default system TestOps folder remains unaffected by this feature, Katalon TestOps ignores any other folder named TestOps in your Git repository. Therefore, do not use TestOps when naming test suites in Katalon Studio or your script repositories. See more about the refresh feature here: Sync your Git repository latest versions to Katalon TestOps.

Update a test suite

You can rename a test suite and add/remove test cases in the test suite you have created in Katalon TestOps.
Warning:
  • Katalon TestOps has a re-import feature where you can import test reports repeatedly. This feature only recognizes the original name of the test suite you have created. If you rename the test suite and then re-import reports, TestOps might not recognize the new test suite name, and consequently, fail to import the latest data. Therefore, rename your test suite with caution.

  1. Go to Test Management > Test Suites.
  2. Find and click your desired script repository in the folder list on the left sidebar.

Delete a test suite

Important:
  • You must have a test suite already created in TestOps.
  • If you delete a test suite that contains execution data, the test suite will become a shell test suite. You can find it in the Uploaded Data​ folder.​
  • If the deleted test suite is linked with any scheduled test runs, it will be unlinked from the schedule.
  • A shell test suite is automatically created to store deleted test data.

For example:

On TestOps, navigate to Test Management > Test Suites. There are two test suites as below: TestOps test suites

  • Test Suite 1 has been executed and contains execution data.
  • Test Suite 2 has never been executed.

If you delete Test Suite 1, shell test suites will be automatically created under the Uploaded data folder to store the deleted Test Suite 1, as it contains executed data:

If you delete Test Suite 2, it will be removed from TestOps completely, as it does not contain executed data.
