What is most valuable?

The most valuable features for me are that Katalon Studio is powerful and yet easy-to-use. This solution — even in comparison to Selenium, which we were using previously — is a little bit more simple… more»

How has it helped my organization?

fast learning curve tool (and profesional) for students new at the subject

What needs improvement?

I really do not know what every user who is using this product might need to make it better for them. I do not think this is an easy question to answer for users globally. I do not think there are any… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Within the department, we were previously using Selenium a few years back for teaching testing. We actually switched to Katalon from student suggestions. In the future, we may change again. The most… more»

What other advice do I have?

In looking at Katalon Studio and comparing it with Selenium, I think Katalon is better. The capture and replay functionality for sure sets Katalon ahead. As far as the API testing, we have not tried… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

One of my colleagues is in charge of teaching software engineering testing issues. When the students are tackling the testing project, they sometimes suggest using different tools. Some years ago it… more»

What is most valuable?

This solution is written in Groovy, which means that we can write Groovy scripts that work with it. We can write code in Java and it is easy to link to other JARs that we find on the internet, which… more»

What needs improvement?

At the moment, this solution only works for web-based products. It's sort of like a Selenium wrapper, which is quite well done. The Object Spy is rather frustrating to work with, so I tend not to use… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This product is freeware, so there is no charge for using it. There is a paid service available that offers a cloud database where you can store your test cases, pull your test executions, get… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are trying to get away from Micro Focus products because they're extremely expensive. For functional testing, we're migrating to Katalon Studio, for example. In the organization as a whole, people… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering this project to have some familiarity with Groovy and Java. If you don't like coding then it will not be the product for you. Otherwise, in our experience… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I was recently tasked with looking at different testing tools, and I evaluated several including Katalon. Once I tried it, I liked it, and so far we've been happy with it.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the capability of doing end-to-end testing for both web and mobile apps. The basic framework and project organization is very good. Data design testing capabilities are… more»

What needs improvement?

The maintenance of the tools can be improved. We have had some issues when it comes to stability i.e when project has lot of items in workspace, which is something that needs to be improved.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There is a free version of the tool to use and support is available through the community forums, but there is a licensed version as well.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to Katalon Studio, we were using UFT for our testing. We switched because Katalon is free and doesn't cost any money. It works in the meantime, and they have the capabilities that we need. The… more»

What other advice do I have?

It is a good product. I would recommend it because they are promoting that they will update it for free, for life. We have had issues with stability but it might be better with the licensed version. I… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options. We needed certain capabilities and we found Katalon to be acceptable.

What is most valuable?

The functionality of the data is very good. You can upload and disperse data using the solution. The reporting is excellent as well.

What needs improvement?

The browsing is messy. The solution tends to rush the tests on multiple processes. That doesn't work in most cases. They need to write a different script for the same test case on the cloud and another script to run the test on Firefox, for… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The tool is free to use.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used Selenium HQ.

What other advice do I have?

We are using the cloud deployment model. I would recommend the tool. For a free solution, it's very good. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The Keyword feature is very good to use in your test cases. There are lots of inbuilt Keyword features already there to use, and one can write their own for use in… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Manual testing requires a lot of manual processes and time to complete the test cycle. With the help of Katalon, the process is running more smoothly and is less… more»

What needs improvement?

My recently-updated Katalon studio version hangs a lot and is not a stable version. The support system should be improved in many areas such as Katalon Studio forums and… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is freeware software, so start using it.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used Selenium, but Katalon is much more user-friendly.

Great tool to start automation, easy to learn and doing.

What is most valuable?

Easy to learn, I don't need to have any expertise in software development. This tool has a custom chat in the IDE, a good tutorial, and I can always update the solution. I like to work with Gherkin language, and I think that I can have results very soon with Selenium. On the other hand, in the same framework, I can work with web applications, mobile applications or web services, and I can record a… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Katalon Studio is easy to install and to learn for other technical people who work in quality assurance and don't work in developing software for a long time. In the other company, they always use Katalon to build the principal test of the business that they need to run when there are changes.

What needs improvement?

I would like if this tool can work without any problems for React Native.

What is most valuable?

The best feature is the split up between test cases and the test object. This allows us to easily change an error.

How has it helped my organization?

Previously, we had no automation solution for the web. Therefore, this application has helped a lot in automating the web.

What needs improvement?

Support options need improvement. It is sometimes hard to find a solution to any given problem, thus you are forced to use another solution.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There is no cost for setup or licensing.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I did not have a previous solution.

What other advice do I have?

My advice is when you need a solution for a web automation tool, then use this one.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did not evaluate other options.

What do you think of Katalon Studio?

What is our primary use case?

I use it for website end-to-end automation and continuous testing via integration on the VSTS CI pipeline. The tool is fully integrated in our tool process.

How has it helped my organization?

It provides us daily feedback on the status (failing/working) of the core features of our websites. A great tool for a non-technical tester to learn automated testing. Also, it is great for a technical tester, because it allows great customization.

What is most valuable?

Video capture on failure is a must have. A picture is worth a thousand words. A video is worth a thousand pictures (literally).

What needs improvement?

Object Spy is brittle. When I try to capture objects, I have to proceed multiple times before it works.

For how long have I used the
