Quality Center allowed users to extract data creating reports from the Dashboard section. Sometimes, however, for particular requests, reports are not so easy to build directly from the GUI of the product and could need a custom reports. This can be done writing code into the Script Editor.
This also because of an important thing: the reading of information.
If data are shown in a tabular format they are more comprehensive because we already think in this way. So this is why the data extraction is favourite if is in Excel format.
By the WorkFlow Script Editor is possible to create new functionality call from custom buttons.
I've put in this section some of the several number of reports users ask:
- Execution + Defects: Report of Executions and related Defects
- Defect Status Changing: Defects Trend. It extract the change of status occurs for a bug in a date range.
- Test Case+Steps: extracts of Test and Step Data.
