Verification Snippets

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

Katalon Studio now supports the ability to write verification scripts directly in Web Service object’s details. This support will greatly reduce the time of going back and forth between the test case and request object to add test scripts. Verify the response can be done instaneously.

Verification snippets can be accessed by clicking on the ‘Verification’ tab within Web Service object’s view.

Using Verification Snippets

When you click on one of the available snippets, Katalon Studio will generate a snippet for you. 

The generated snippet is ONLY an example. DON’T try to use them immediately without adjustments matched your needs, otherwise it will not work.

Once the verification snippets are generated, you can use it in either in your current Web Service’s object or in your Test Case

  • In Web Service’s object: Click on drop-down button next to ‘Play’ button in Web Service object’s details and select ‘Test Request and Verify’. 

    It will send the current request and also execute verification snippets. Verification logs executed using verification snippets will be displayed on ‘Verification Log’ tab. If you don’t want to send a test request using current verification snippets, then just click on ‘Play’ button.

  • In test case:  Use ‘Send Request and Verify’ keyword. This will also send the current request and execute verification snippets. 

    WS.sendRequestAndVerify(findTestObject('REST_CommentDetails'))
    

    Execution results will be displayed in ‘Log Viewer’ tab.
