Updating a JIRA ticket and the update automatically adjusts confluence

Our requirements live in Confluence and then transferred to JIRA tickets. We see JIRA as our "source of truth" if you will, wanting to know if anyone knows of a feature that allows the updates made to a particular ticket in JIRA to update the requirements doc in confluence. Thanks in advance!

This is a bit difficult. 

In Confluence, you can easily use the Jira macros to pull data (especially status) from the Jira issues, but these don't update a Confluence page, they just report on the issues.

I think your question is a bit deeper than that, but I don't want to project my guesses or instincts.

Could you go into a bit more detail about what you want from "update automatically adjusts Confluence"?

Absolutely! I'll set the scene for you. I'm demoing a new feature to my boss and wants an adjustment made. So I can have my dev start in it immediately I go and update the JIRA ticket they're working from to reflect the change. I then have to go update our decision log (which is fine) and update the supporting requirements doc in Confluence.

This may not sound like a lot but it can get out of hand quickly because of the size of the project so, I'm looking for a way to auto-update the requirements document with the changes I've made to the JIRA ticket. I figured this was a feature since Confluence allows you to easily transfer requirements into tickets with two clicks. Thanks in advance on any light you can shed :)
