Component Library

Takes the user to the structure editor and administrator, where the components will be arranged for direct and intuitive access.
Using the filter, you can display the components and organize them by dragging them from one directory to another.
The following components are available:

  • Remote libraries
  • Datasets
  • Resource files
  • Combined keywords
  • Tag/Tags
  • Variables

Combined Keyword

The Combined Keywords button takes the user to the Combined Keywords editor and administrator.

  • When you rename a combined keyword, it is automatically reflected wherever it is used.
  • When creating a new combined keyword, it is crucial to add a very clear description, since it will be shown to the user if they use the F1 key on the combined keyword.
  • As many combined keywords as needed can be used inside another combined keyword.
  • The component library value will be set to root by default, but can be modified to store the combined keyword in a location that is aligned with the hierarchy you have put in place.
    Combined keywords allow you to "create" a new keyword by assembling many keywords. It eases the reading of the scripts since the combined keyword includes several instructions/validations that would have been displayed on as many lines.

List of variables

The User Variables button takes the user to the editor and administrator of user and system variables.
They are variables created by the users of Alithya GoTest. They are associated with a project or a subcomponent (Test Plan / Functionality / Scenario).
Users can use variables in the Step Keyword and Combined Keyword. From the Variables page, the user can easily locate all the places where a variable is used in their projects.
Finally, in the scripting steps area, the user can see the actual value attributed to specific variables by simply clicking on the "eye" icon.
Several types of variables can be created:

  • Basic variable
  • List variable
  • Dictionary variable
  • "Secret" variable. It is possible to select the "secret" option only for the basic variables. It is still possible to store secret variables in lists or dictionaries using the appropriate keywords.

    Once a variable is secret, it is not possible to "unmask" it. You will need to delete it and create a new one.
    How to create a variable

List of resource files

This functionality allows you to import files used in your Alithya GoTest projects without having to "map" drives or perform complex operations.
For example, SQL files can be imported to test your database more easily.

List of tags

You can create and assign tags to your scenarios.
During execution, you can select the tags you want to execute or exclude. This option is available for automatic, manual, and hybrid executions, launched via the user interface, the scheduler, or even via the public API.
Tags can also be used to categorize or identify scenarios. For example, using a "to be reviewed" tag to identify those who are subject to peer review.

List of datasets

Use the "Data Driven" feature to execute the same scenario multiple times, but with different data on each scenario execution.

List of remote libraries

To get started, you first need to make sure you have the proper user rights to access the Remote Library feature within Alithya GoTest.
The Remote Library concept means having test libraries on machines other than where Robot Framework itself is running.

Header Menu Bar

Icons in Zone B, Top Menu Header Bar


The "Dashboard" allows all users to view the execution results of test plans defined in the software. Because its features are used as monitoring and measuring tools, it is the opening page for users with a manager role.

Execution Console

Its main feature is a grid displaying every task that has been launched from the Editor page, for all manual and automated projects.



The "Projects" section gives you access to the editor, which has a static hierarchy that is accessible when selecting a project. The project hierarchy is composed of projects, test plans, functions, scenarios, and steps. Each is displayed as a quick access button at the top for easy navigation. To drill down in the hierarchy, just select an item from the list displayed.
