Defect Number is not displayed in the report

I have an observation on the report.

Step 1 : Fail a TestCase and update the JIRA bug on “Defects” field
Step 2 : Now, generated the TC report and you can see the defect number displayed defects column for the TC.
Step 3 : Now, assign the same failed TC to any of your team member
Step 4 : Now, again generate the TC report and you cant find the defect number that is mapped to TC in defects column, however the status of defect remains with Failed status

This is not helping at times when we download report to search with the defect number. We expect, the mapped defect number should always been displayed for Failed case even if the test was assigned to some one or not.
Appreciate if you can have a solution for the same. Thanks
