First we need to add Project Name . Its mandatory field .
Here we entered project name for our project as " Test Project"
Now moving next we need to add prefix to test case id in test link . Now many of new tester may have question "What is Prefix for test case ID in Testlink ?" Prefix means the word or character appended as prefix in test case id
Here T is prefix given by me while creating project and 001 is auto generated test case id. So you just need to enter prefix. This is also mandatory field.
