Reusing Desired Capabilities across projects

When desired capabilities need to be used across projects, users have to manually re-define them again in a project in use, which is time-consuming and error-prone.

Consequently, from version 8.0.0, Katalon Studio allows you to import and export desired capabilities in the Katalon Studio project(s). These functions support you to work with Desired Capabilities more efficiently and less error-prone.

Problem

Solution

Reuse or copy the configured desired capabilities to multiple places with some minor changes.

Do as follows:

  1. Choose the driver you want to export its desired capabilities > Export it as JSON file.
  2. Modify the JSON file if needed.
  3. Choose the driver you want to import the desired capabilities > Import the modified JSON file.
Share the configured desired capabilities for team members to reduce the effort spent on modification and recreation of the same settings.

Requirements

  • Katalon Studio version 8.0.0.
  • An active Katalon Studio Enterprise license.

Import Desired Capabilities

  1. Create new desired capabilities configuration using JSON file.

  2. Go to Project/Settings/Desired Capabilities > choose the driver that you want to import the desired capabilities.

  3. Click Import. In the dialog box, Browse the imported JSON file > OK.

    By default, all current existing desired capabilities will be overridden by imported ones.

Export Desired Capabilities

  1. Go to Project/Settings/Desired Capabilities > choose the driver that you want to export its desired capabilities.

  2. Click Export. In the dialog box, select the destination folder to save the exported file > Save.

    Note

    The export configuration will be saved as a JSON file to reduce your effort spent on modification and recreation capabilities in case you want to copy the configuration to multiple places with some minor changes.
