Viewing Test Suite Reports – Katalon Studio | Software Testing Material

Viewing Test Suite Reports – Katalon Studio:

Katalon Studio is designed to ease many challenges that manual testers are facing. In a large project, there may be hundreds or even thousands of test cases and test execution. Test suite reports produced by Katalon Studio allow users to monitor their test status and have a better understanding of their project’s test coverage. This guide ‘Viewing Test Suite Reports’ will give you an overview of reports and related supported basic functions.

Once a test suite finishes its execution, a historical report is automatically generated and stored in the Reports section of Tests Explorer. Test suite execution reports are placed in chronological order with the most recent one on top.

For example:

The report will be named with following the naming convention: YYYYMMDD_HHmmss, which is the datetime when the test suite starts its execution.

Report Overview

In Test Explorer view, double-click on a historical execution of a test suite to view its details:


Component Description
Test Cases Table List of executed test cases.
Summary Summary information of executed environment.
Execution Settings Settings for execution which include information about how to handle a failed test case, page loading timeout, etc. For example:

Execution Environment Information concerning the execution environment, including Host Name, Operating System (os), Katalon Studio version, browser, etc. For example:

Test Cases List

  • The Test Case Table displays the list of all executed test cases in a test suite. If data-driven testing is used, each test case will be executed through a number of times (iterations) that are defined in the Data Iteration column of the current test suite as shown in the steps No. 5 to 7 below.

Users can easily determine what information to display by using the filters.

Filter Description


Show only iterations which are passed.


Show only iterations which are failed.


Show only iterations having errors.


Show only incomplete iterations
  • By selecting an iteration in Test Case Table and click Show Test Case Details, you can view details regarding its executed logs.
