A CI/CD plugin will help download, deploy, and execute Katalon Studio on servers automatically.
Other advantages are:
- Being quick and easy - you won’t even have to install Katalon Studio manually
- Being able to work even on machines without displays.
- Allocating an isolated virtual display for each Jenkins build increases the stability of execution.
This article will show you how to configure a CI/CD plugin.
Download Katalon Studio version
E.g. 5.10.1. The list of all releases can be retrieved from here.
Use pre-installed Katalon Studio
Use this field when Katalon Studio cannot be downloaded automatically (often due to network conditions).
E.g. -browserType="Chrome" -retry=0 -statusDelay=15 -testSuitePath="Test Suites/Regression Tests/All tests". Please leave out -runMode. If not specified, -projectPath will be set to the current workspace directory.
Note: Environment variables can be applied in the command arguments to parameterize the configuration with the following syntax:
- For Windows:
- For Linux/macOS:
X11 DISPLAY (for Linux)
E.g.: This value will be used as the DISPLAY environment variable. Jenkins must be allowed to connect to the display, see xhost if you encounter access control issues.
Xvfb-run configuration (for Linux)
E.g.: -a -n 0 -s "-screen 0 1024x768x24".
If specified, xvfb-run will be used. Please make sure Xvfb has been installed.
Save the configuration after finishing.
