This is an update to inform you that this ticket is invalid.
The key used here, jira.permission.create.clone.denied, is invalid, and JIRA is just throwing a valid error:
Unknown type 'clone' in meta attribute 'jira.permission.create.clone.denied'. Valid permission types are defined in permission-types.xml
Using the right key, jira.permission.createclone.denied, the problem shouldn't happen.
JRASERVER-67652 is about a similar, valid bug when using the right key, and there is a Workaround. Please watch it for more details.
