Default values for system fields isn't supported in JIRA, please see here - https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-4812
But this functionality can be achieved using plugins like Script Runner.
And this discussion https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/24654632
You can do this with JJUPIN, it's a very simple thing.
You have to create a small script that watches over the issue type and the description and sets the value of the second one from the first one.
A similar example, but with some other fields is here: https://confluence.kepler-rominfo.com/display/TR/Default+values+of+%28system%29+fields+on+create+screen
Hope this helps,
Be aware that it might break while upgrading to a new JIRA version, so these customizations will always have to be rigorously documented and maintained when servers are overhauled for one or more reasons.
