0008294: Need to add same set of test cases into two different test projects wihout duplicating the test case
We have created two different test projects. both projects need to have similar set of test cases with some other different test cases.
testlink won't allow to use one test project's test cases in another test project.
Due to that reason, we have to duplicate test cases in two different places.

Is there a way to add test cases into two projects without duplicating them.
No tags attached.

give a look to ghost feature that allows reuse, but you need anyway to create a new test case on the target Project

Have Project A with test case TC1A
Want to reuse on Project B, you need to create a Test Case TCZA and (may be ) can add a reference to TC1A.
But user will need access to BOTH Projects A & B.

If the test cases are increased heavily due to this, what is the solution will be given from Testlink. I just want to know the impact for the performance of testlink.

you have to give try before asking for performance impacts, that anyway you will be only one to check due to characteristics of your infrastructure
