Hi @Anastasia Krutitsenko 

Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

May  I know which instance you are using? Is it Cloud or Server/Data Center?

On DC and Cloud - You can use the automation rule based on that you can move linked issue based on other linked issue.


Or Through JSU plugin or Script Runner Plugin  you can achieve this there  you can transits  the  issue to close based on linked issue.


Accept the issue if it helps

Dears @Paula Kraszewska and @Sachin Dhamale 


Could you please clarify if the automation is possible if these two issues are in different projects?

@Anastasia Krutitsenko ,


You can use the global automation rule

Hi @Anastasia Krutitsenko 

Here's a simple block of the native automation that should help you close linked issues. Of course you can add more conditions (issues in a status, project, etc.) to suite your needs.




Hi @Sachin Dhamale ,


Thank you for your reply. It is Cloud. 

Could you please describe the steps in more details?
