Export Test Projects

From version 5.6.0 onwards, Katalon Recorder (KR) users can export multiple tests into a single file. This file is compatible with many other frameworks, such as Katalon Studio, Java Maven or Python.

This feature is especially useful to users outgrowing the capabilities of KR. As your work requirements and projects complexity increase, you can move your test artifacts and projects to other frameworks. This allows you to benefit from further advanced testing without losing your work.

The table below shows the full list of exporting features that KR offers, compared with Selenium IDE:

Export to Katalon Studio

To export a test project to KS, follow these steps:

  1. Open Katalon Recorder.

    The Export to Katalon Studio dialog appears as below.

    kr export test project to ks
  3. Select the data you want to export.

  4. Click Export.

    The downloaded file is a .zip file.

You can now unzip this file to import your tests in Katalon Studio.

Export to other frameworks

Requirements (for Java/Python frameworks):

  • ChromeDriver installed.
  • Java/Python IDE installed (preferably IntelliJ).

Follow these steps:

  1. Open Katalon Recorder.

  2. On the left sidebar, go to Export > Export to other frameworks.

  3. Select a framework (e.g., Java (WebDriver + TestNG)).

  4. Select the tests you want to export. kr export test project to ks

    Katalon Recorder will also notify you here if there are incompatible commands. kr export test project to ks

  5. Click Export.

You can now import the file/project with your framework of choice.

Notes:

  • For Java JUnit, Java TestNG and Python, the data is exported as a full project. You can open the project in the Java/Python IDE.

  • For other frameworks, the data is exported as a .zip file.
