Starting from Katalon Studio version 7.0.0, you can update WebDrivers directly from the application. This feature supports Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.
Update a Webdriver
You can update a Webdriver directly from Katalon Studio. From the main toolbar, select Tools > Update WebDrivers. Select a browser in the dropdown list.
Alternatively, you can use this command argument
--config -webui.autoUpdateDrivers=true in console mode to allow automatic WebDriver updates. You can learn more about using the console mode here: Console Mode Execution.
Replace a Webdriver
To upgrade or downgrade WebDrivers, you can replace WebDrivers manually. You can choose to do so at the application or project level.
By default, Katalon Studio runs WebDrivers at the application level. Adding a Webdriver at the project level overrides the application level to open your web browsers.
Do as follows:
- Find the WebDriver version you want to run your test with. You can find them here:
Versions of browser drivers:
- Find the location of the WebDrivers you want to replace.
- At the application level, WebDriver binaries are stored here:
- At the project level, go to \Project Folder\Include on your computer and follow the below paths:
For Window users For macOS users For Linux users
By default, there is no Webdriver at project level. After replacing WebDrivers at project level, restart Katalon Studio to run new WebDrivers.
- After finding the correct location, replace the
driver.exefile with the one you have downloaded.
After updating or downgrading WebDrivers, to make sure the current version of the browser driver is running smoothly, it is advisable to try re-running the test to resolve and check any pop-up issues.
Use DriverFactory library
Katalon Studio also offers DriverFactory library to manipulate WebDriver instances by using Katalon keywords. You can learn more about this here: DriverFactory.
