This article discusses the steps that can be followed to get the test cases from TestCollab run automatically through Katalon Studio.

How it works?

As an example a simple Signup case targeted at TestCollab application's signup process is being used. It checks that the application should not allow a new signup when an email already registered in system is used. It also checks that the application should allow signup from an email that is not registered in the system so far.

Variables

Global as well as local (test case specific) variables used:

Name

Scope

Description

api_token

Global

Holds user's API token generated in TestCollab

project_id

Global

Holds id of TestCollab's project

testcase_id

Test Case

Holds id of the TestCollab's test case that need to be executed

Methods

Some of the methods that are used :

Name

Parameters

Returns

Description

get_user_id

-

Id of user

To get the Id of user whose API token is used

get_testplantestcases

-

Next step

In this example, we have not set the step wise results, this can be done by setting JSON for individual step of test case having step index , step , expected result , status, comment, mentions and attachments etc.

If you are using Katalon Runtime Engine then a middle tier utility can be developed that monitors the assignment of test cases that need automation, so that the scripts can automatically be triggered in Katalon Studio. You can also schedule execution for your test cases.
