Dear all,

we have a requirement to update issues when a linked issue is updated,

Hello @Sander Theetaert and welcome to the Atlassian community!

Im not sure what fields you are trying to update, but I came up with this example by going to Automation for Jira's Rule Playground

In this scenario, when an issue is update, if there are linked issues present, it will update the fix version from the trigger issue. You should be able to select specific link types or edit whichever field you want.
