Katalon Studio Room for 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 it. Instead, I just go and look at the objects in the HTML code, in Chrome for example. A more user-friendly Object Spy would be an improvement. I would like to see the extension to other GUIs such as Windows and SAP. View full review »

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 example. Also, in terms of reporting, in the documentation, it's mentioned that Katalon takes screenshots if the test case fails. But not on all test cases. I need to take screenshots manually. Often, running parallel test cases at the same time doesn't work. If it launches the first test case and it tries to launch the second test case at the same time, for example, the first test case will finish but the second will not stop. A lot of people are talking about this issue on the forums. The application is prone to freezing when it loads. Katalon doesn't support testing of hybrid applications. It's a limitation.

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 the Katalon community page, where developer responses take a lot of time to reply to user questions. Actually support response time is more than expected. View full review »

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

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

Katalon Studio should improve on its supported platforms. It should start working on Silverlight automation as well. View full review »
