Download Katalon Studio

Katalon Studio is available for free, supporting both Windows and Mac. Visit the Katalon Studio website to download the latest version.

 

Environment Configuration

First you need to verify if your computer meets the System Requirements to automate using Katalon Studio.

For Web UI automation, no additional settings are needed except making sure the required browsers are installed. Check this list for all supported browsers.

Note: in case you are Windows users, you may want to disable the User Access Control (UAC) settings so that Katalon Studio can launch Chrome/Firefox browsers properly. Refer to this guide for steps to disable the UAC settings on different Windows.

For Mobile app automation, you need to install Node.js and Appium and enable the USB Debugging mode on your device. Please refer to the Installation Guide for more details.
