The design of the Katalon Studio is to ease many challenges that manual testers are facing. Additionally, in a large project, there may be hundreds or even thousands of test cases and test executions. Therefore, 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. Subsequently, this guide will give you an overview of reports and related supported essential functions. Additionally, we will discuss the below topics in the article, view test suite reports in Katalon:

  • Test Suite Report
  • Report Overview
  • Test Cases List
  • Test Suite Summary
  • Test Log Details
    • Test Log Tab
    • Information Tab
    • Integration Tab
  • Test Suite Collection Report
  • Report History
  • Export Report to Other Formats

Once a test suite finishes its execution, a historical report generates automatically and stores in the Reports section of Tests Explorer. Moreover, we place the Test suite execution reports in chronological order with the most recent one on top.

For example:

In addition to this, the naming of the reports happens according to the naming convention: YYYYMMDD_HHmmss, which is the datetime when the test suite starts its execution.

Test Suite Report

Beginning from version 6.3.0, we can view the reports directly inside each Test Suite page.

Katalon Studio’s Reports feature allows users to overview test execution by providing the essential details and necessary information. Additionally, it provides information from PASSED/FAILED to further details on the execution environment, test summary, or logs. Subsequently, using this information, test managers and QAs can better manage and track test activities, resulting in improved testing productivity. Conclusively, that's all about how to view test suite reports in Katalon.
