We have a project which uses Robot Framework 2.7.7, while we are using HP-QC for Bug tracking.

Is it possible to integrate Robot Framework with HP Quality center?

What do you want the integration to do? – corsiKa Feb 27 '13 at 23:02
Well, like QTP is integrated with QC. A test is connected to a bug. When the test is fullfilled the status of the Bug changes at QC. – Luixv Mar 1 '13 at 10:23
If you use Jenkins, there is already a plugin for Robot. – djangofan Jul 5 '13 at 20:37

Integration can be done in multiple ways.

One of the way is to use VAPI. If you are using VBS or Java VAPI, (visual Application programming Interface) will be useful. The VAPI integrator can be used for integration with ROBOT. The integrator has capability of launching third part applications which can be used to launch ROBOT test suite. The Robot testscript have capability to save execution result in external file. The VAPI integrator can get inputs from this dynamically updated file as test cases keep on updating results.

At he end it is possible to script to parse Robot result file and update required fields in QC. I think you are looking for specific case of case tied up with bug. The script will change the bug related test case status after execution.
