1. A method for generating at least one configuration file for an automation tool in order to configure the automation tool, the method being implemented by a computer and comprising:
receiving an automation tool type,
selecting, according to the automation tool type, a predetermined configuration file model from a group of predetermined configuration file models, wherein
each predetermined configuration file model of the group of predetermined configuration file models being associated to a respective automation tool,
each predetermined configuration file model of the group of predetermined configuration file models comprising a plurality of input objects,
each input object of the plurality of input objects presenting a parameter to be provided for the generating the at least one configuration file,
determining a hierarchy of the plurality of input objects from the group of predetermined configuration file models, the hierarchy being in a form of an object tree with a root object forming a top of the object tree, the object tree defining, for said each input object except for the root object, another input object as a parent for said each input object and including hierarchies of parent and child objects where parameters are part of a group of parameters,
generating the at least one configuration file according to the hierarchy of the plurality of input objects, comprising reading said each input object of the hierarchy, generating a text block corresponding to each input element and gradually adding the text block to the at least one configuration file, according to an order imposed by the hierarchy.
