In RQM 5.0.2 Version,

 I have created an Test suite and I have already created an ten Testcases for some requirements.

 Now , I will add the Testcases in to the Test suite one by one and finally i will save the Test suite.

But now my question is , why RQM Test suite is allowing user to the add the same testcase again and again. It  is not tracking the unique addition of Testcases whereas the Test plan will not allow the same testcase to add again and again into the testplan.

I think that within a test plan, the test cases are "what" to run so it does not make sense to have duplicates.  For a test suite, the test cases are "how" to run besides "what" to run.  The test cases are run in specific order.  I can picture a test case "capture data and reset system" that runs multiple times after many test cases within a test suite.

In RQM, Is there any configuration setting available just to avoid the addition of same unique id having Test cases in to an Test suite.

It may be difficult to keep track of adding the test cases into a Test suite, when there are a lot of test cases to be taken care.

Sorry there is no such setting.  If there is a need for this option, please submit an enhancement here - IBM RFE Community.
