Integrate TestCloud with TestOps

Katalon TestCloud (Beta) is now available for seamless integration with Katalon TestOps.

Current test environments require time and effort to set up and maintain while providing limited browser/operating system (OS) options. By contrast, with just a few clicks, you can easily set up a TestCloud Test Environment in Katalon TestOps for your test execution across browsers and OS.

The TestCloud Test Environment also allows you to:

  • execute tests on a public domain.
  • execute tests on a private domain via a TestCloud tunnel.
  • track your TestCloud testing quota.

TestCloud stabilizes the test results when you execute a massive number of parallel tests.
