Summary0007753: Add new `Test Suite Operation` - Create reference to Test Suite
I have one Test Suite which I want to put in 3 places of my Project Tree structure.

Allow references to this Test Suite in Tree structure.

This will allow me to easy manage my Test Specification and

Expected views to be affected:
- Test Specification
- Execute Tests
- Add / Remove Test Cases
- Assign Test Case Execution
- Update Linked Test Case Versions - for given test plan you will remember version for reference

references is not the solution and will create lot of issues when saveing info about test execution.

solution can be create new test suite with test cases as GHOST

I structure that is complicated and I wanted to organize it by making references to 3 other places. Creating ghost cases is basically way to redundancy and inconsistency in my test spec because copying(ghost steps) is coping. Currently I'm on 1.9.13 and I don't have option to copy suite with cases copied as ghosts steps. Proposed workflow will lead me to problem of not actual spec because description and preconditions are not inherited from parent test cases. It seems there is no reasonable way to achieve what I want to achive with test link at current development stage.

My sample tree structure
- suite A
+ case 1
+ case 2
+ case 3
-- suite A1
++ case 4
--- suite A11
+++ case 5
+++ case 6
---- suite A111
++++ case 7

- suite B
+ case 13
-- suite B1
++ case 8
++ case 9
--- suite B11
++++ case 10
----- suite B111
+++++ case 11
--- suite B12
+++ case 12

For example I wan to have reference of suite A1 with all test cases and suits under it in B11. Impossible.
