Yes,

There're add-ons to do that.

Another way is to code the sync in groovy or sil or java.

You need to keep a reference in a field or link to the other issue and the user running should be able to read and write both of the issues

Thanks for the reply, you guys implemented it?

can you suggest me any addon or sample script.

 

Thanks.

You can try with scriptrunner, jjupin and i think there's a free one for python.

I'm usually work with ScriptRunner.

Here you can find a lot of code to work with:

In my experience maintaining a dependecy between any entity, in this case two issues, is hard to maintain, so, my recommendation is:

make a great documentation and include the criteria, for every issue of the relationship document with fields it is responsible to set.

Thank you, Gaston.
