Hi Mohammed,

no link-type will do this. You can see an official statement here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-2735 

I would close the duplicated issue right after creation and linking. Why do you want to keep a duplicate issue open?

Mohammed you need to look into a plugin to achieve this. Scriptrunner is something you could evaluate.

Good luck!
