Testing on server

To run the tests on the server you will need to place the project folder on the server.

The project has the following structure:

  • Data Files (Where test parameters are defined).
  • Object Repository (Where are the objects that the test recorder writes).
  • Profiles (User profiles are used to change setting according to user).
  • Reports (Katalon Studio automatically generates logs with information about the tests).
    • Note: Tos not load the server with unnecessary logs, you can add the following command to the script that runs the tests:
      • rm -rf [path]/SistemaTestes/Reports/202*
  • Script (Where test scripts are stored).
  • Test Cases.
  • Test Suites (Test set).

Command Line

To execute tests on server is necessary to run the following command: ./katalon {options}

Example:

./katalon -noSplash -runMode=console -projectPath=[project path] -retry=1 -retryStrategy=immediately -testSuitePath=”Test Suites/[test name]” -browserType=”Chrome (headless)” -executionProfile=”default” -apiKey=”********-****-****-****-************” –config -proxy.auth.option=NO_PROXY -proxy.system.option=NO_PROXY -proxy.system.applyToDesiredCapabilities=true

  • -runMode=console
    • Run on command line
  • -projectPath
    • Path to the project
  • -retry=1
    • Tests tries after fail
  • -retryStrategy:
    • In case of a test fail, indicates what is the strategy
      • Immediately:
        • After test fail execute immediately same test.
      • allExecutions:
        • Execute all tests.
      • failedExecutions:
        • Execute all tests, then execute failed ones
    • testSuitePath:

Sugestion

To simplify the execution of the katalon command we suggest to create a executable file containing the command.

vi [script name].sh

// Add katalon command

./katalon {options}

// To delete generated logs

rm -rf [path]/SistemaTestes/Reports/202*

And compile: chmod +x [script name].sh

To execute:

./[script name].sh
