Overall Satisfaction with Katalon Studio

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.
Our team uses Selenium and now we are working on Katalon to see if it can be of any help to our project.
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.
