Use relationship between issues to automatically define structure in structure plugin

Does anybody know if it is possible to define a structure or template in the structure plugin in the way that an issue will be AUTOMATICALLY displayed as parent issue and all other issues linked to this parent issue by the relationship 'implements' are displayed as sub-issue. I mean I do not want to manually assign the sub-issues to the parent issue as we are working alway like this: one (parent) issue is implemented by one or more (sub-)issues from another T&R project. Is it possible to define a structure to automatically display this dependency? Thank you!

Yes, see the links synchronizer.

Thank you very much for the quick answer. This is exactly what I was looking for!

Jutta, just make sure you read and understand the description of all the synchronizer's options. Links sync done wrong may delete your links. You can use "Links Primacy" option to have links always win over structure.

Igor, thank you for the warning and your tip. I have already noticed that this is quite a powerful tool and that you have to be very careful with what you are doing.

On that note, it's well worth applying synchronizer permissions to keep inexperienced users out of trouble -
