This makes a nonsense of a tracking system, and with an automation, it means you're destroying information without human oversight.
You would need an app like ScriptRunner for Jira or Automation for doing that.
In case you already have ScriptRunner you can write script to check for specific conditions and use a code like this below to delete the issue.
IssueManager im = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def issue = im.getIssueObject("SCRUM-25") as MutableIssue
ApplicationUser user = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName("admin")
im.deleteIssue(user, issue, EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_DELETED, false)
