  2. On the main Toolbar, click on the Record button. The Record dialog appears.

  3. To start recording a test case, click on the Record button.

  4. Execute all your test steps in the browser. Katalon Studio records all the actions you perform on the browser.

  5. You can Stop or Pause recording if needed. When you are done with recording, click OK to save the recorded actions into Katalon Studio.

  6. A dialog appears, asking you to save captured objects into the Object Repository of Katalon Studio. Click OK to continue.

    Recorded objects and actions are saved into the test case.
