Override test results status in Katalon TestOps

Automated tests produce test results automatically. This means that test results are fixed unless you manually update the status of a test result to reflect actual expectations.

In Katalon TestOps, you can edit the status of a test result and provide a reason for the change to notify your team of the change.

This feature also allows you to:

  • keep a clear record of why a test result has been changed, who changed it, and the reason for the change.

  • find out whether the status of a test result has been manually modified and what was its initial status.

  • see the whole history of status changes.

Change the status of a Test Result

  • Changing the status of a Test Result affects the status of a Test Run and its Test Suite. You should override Test Results statuses with caution. See TestOps Formulas for definitions of Status (Test Run) and Status (Test Suite).

Follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to Katalon TestOps and go to your Project.

  2. Go to Reports > Test Runs.

  3. Click on a Test Run ID, then select the Test Results tab.

    You can see the list of all test results and their details (Status, ID, Name, Time, Assertions, Links) here.

  4. Click on the Extension icon of the Test Result you want to change.
