Not only am I an Automation Engineer, I'm also one of the Quality Center admins at my current job.
And for the record, the out of the box reporting capabilities of Quality Center SUCK. I had a situation last week where the Manual Testing Manager wanted a list of test cases that appear in one test set but not in another. Simple "intersection" of two test sets right?
WRONG! I tried every concievable report schema to get this to work and kept failing.
Ultimately, I was forced to go to the DB and do a direct select statement with about 5 table joins to get the Test Plan location of the test cases.
In a word...ANNOYING!!!
Its the weakest part of that application and ye gods is it frustrating.
