Your all-new API testing experience with Katalon Studio 5.8

Katalon Studio 5.8 API Testing

Hello all,

Katalon team is excited to announce the release of Katalon Studio v5.8 to bringing to you an all-new experience for your API/Web Service testing project:

API/Web Service testing project

Instantly import Web service requests with Quick Start Wizard

The Quick Start wizard allows you to quickly import Swagger 2.0/WSDL definition, create draft REST/SOAP requests, or try out with different testing requirements. When importing Web service definition, Katalon Studio will load specified information and populate into your project so you will never have to spend time converting them manually. This wizard can be launched and relaunched anytime in Help > Quick Start.

Web service request objects can be added directly to a test case from the ‘Object Details’ view with two available options: ‘Add to new Test Case’ or ‘Add to existing  Test Case.’

Support PATCH HTTP method

Katalon Studio now supports the PATCH HTTP method to help you apply a partial modification to resources.


This release also includes new bugs fixes to advance the convenience and quality of your test automation:

  • Fix an issue in which local URL cannot be used for SOAP requests.
  • Remove an error message displayed when users create a new sample project.

We hope you enjoy your API testing experience with Katalon Studio v5.8 and don’t forget to provide your feedback so that we can make Katalon Studio more suitable for your needs.
