  • Test Analytics: Katalon also provides analytics which tells you the pattern of your automated tests at a different instance of time.
  • Third Party Integration: Katalon provides amazing integration with 3rd party tools like JIRA, ALM, GIT, JENKINS, etc.
  • Image-based testing: Katalon also provides inbuilt image based test automation.
  • Katalon supports only two programming languages, Groovy/Java.
  • Community support is not good at the moment..
  • Many features are still in development with Katalon team.
It is well suited for quick automation and avoiding dependency on coding skilled resources. It has no licensing fee. It is not well suited for complex projects where high customization is required.

I've used Katalon for R&D purposes here at Tech Mahindra. I was trying to understand the features and benefits of the tool as to see how well it could fit in our organisation. And moreover being open source it's a very handy tool.
  • Open Source Tool
  • Simple and easy to use, plus a powerful automation solution. The UI is very pleasing.
  • Easy installation.
  • As per my R&D, I found that locating the nested elements was difficult.
  • Also if a script fails due to waiting on the application it causes a lot of problems.
  • Verifying text and objects within Iframes can be a challenge.
The best feature of Katalon is that it is possible to automate most of the common functionalities of web and mobile apps without the coding experience. Also the tool enables everyone to automate with ease and efficiency by leveraging built-in features. You can even start automating the application right from the first sprint. The record and play on browsers and mobile apps is possible unlike Selenium. It's easy to learn and use.
