      Problem Definition

      Currently JIRA allows all users to clone issues (which can optionally be disabled entirely - see workaround). As a JIRA Administrator, I'd like to restrict the ability to Clone issues to certain groups only.

      Suggested Solution

      Add a Clone Issues permission to Permission Schemes.


      (This will disable the Clone feature entirely)

      1. Navigate to Administration » Add-ons » Manage Add-ons;
      2. Select System (in the add-ons type box);
      3. Filter by "issue operation";
      4. Click on it, and select "XX Modules Enabled";
      5. Disable the View Issue Ops Bar Clone Link module.

      Original Description

      The "Clone this issue" link doesn't mean anything to most of our users, so it would be nice to be able to remove this link. It should be another permission in the Permission Schemes screen (like the "Link Issues" permission)
