Jira ticket loosing reference to testruns and testcases

Hello it seems that if a jira ticket, created and linked to a defect on a testrun result, is reassigned to a different team/project in jira the related testruns and testcases are lost from that ticket.
This seems to cause major synchronization issues between the 2 platforms.
Is there any workaround for that?

I know that we can always go to the test result and update the defect value to reflect the newly assigned ticket, but this is too much for a large scale company

Also if a testrun is marked as closed, there is no way to updte the defect value
