Automatic update of Due Date Field in JIRA based on update of previous activity

We are using JIRA for project Management. Have entered all our activities we need to do with start and end dates. Need help on how to setup dependencies between activities and if the due date of one activity is changed, how it can update all the dependent activities can also be automatically updated and those dates pushed out.

Example : Step 1 goes for 5 days from Jan 1st to Jan 5th. Step 2 ( depends on completion of step 1 and goes for 10 days ). If Step 1 completation date is changed to Jan 7th, start and end dates of Step 2 should be auto updated. Pretty much like what someone would see in Microsoft Project

JIRA doesn't support auto. But you can use plugin WBS Gantt-Chart for JIRA
