Accelerate test automation with Katalon Plugin for Bamboo

We’re excited to introduce Katalon Studio for Bamboo—a plugin that helps integrate Katalon Studio with Bamboo CI server. This blog will guide you through the plugin’s features and functionalities, so that you can take Katalon Studio test automation to the next level with Bamboo.


Bamboo is a continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) server, developed by Atlassian. Many developers have been prone to using Bamboo in their CI/CD pipelines because of these benefits:

  • Deep developer tools integrations
  • Built-in deployment support
  • Powerful build agent management
  • Automated merging
  • Built-in Git branching and workflows
  • Enterprise support and resources

By integrating Katalon Studio with Bamboo, you can seamlessly view and monitor the status of your Bamboo builds and deployments without leaving your Katalon projects.

This plugin also enables you to bypass the process of writing in command line, which can be time-consuming, or might require a certain level of programming skill. With this plugin, you can input information (e.g. which Katalon Studio version to download before executing tests, which test suites to execute, where to store result files, etc.) via the friendly user-interface, instead of through a command language interpreter (CLI).

Here are some highlights of Katalon Studio for Bamboo:

1. Command arguments

Input all relevant command arguments for your test plan


2. Headless test execution

Configure to run Katalon Studio on a headless machine with Xvfb


3. Import Katalon Studio artifacts

Configure to copy reports of all executed test suites from Katalon and view them in Bamboo
