Use Plugins in Katalon Studio's Console Mode

Before getting started, refer to API Keys Settings to learn how to generate and manage API keys in Katalon Store.

Apply API Keys in Katalon Studio Commandline Execution

  1. Generate a new API key or using an existing key
  2. Add the apiKey parameter to the execution command line.

For example:

katalon -noSplash -runMode=console -consoleLog -noExit -projectPath="C:\Users\Katalon Studio\Project\YourProject.prj" -retry=0 -testSuitePath="Test Suites/TS_RegressionTest" -browserType="Chrome (headless)" -apiKey=e4c46ee7-0179-4309-a7bf-c0530bf61d07

  1. Plugins installed by the API key owners will be downloaded and installed to Katalon Studio before execution. Functions of the plugins will be triggered accordingly.

Install a plugin directly from console

  1. Generate a new API key by going to Security tab in My Account menu in Katalon Store. You can use the existing key if you already had one.

  2. From your command in Katalon Studio, add the console option -apiKey=<Your_API_Key>
