Hi @Chetan Krishna Sai Naidu_Jira-Admin 

Unfortunately that is not possible at this time. 

I understand why "disable cloning issues" is needed, as it can propagate poorly written, incorrect information to new issues, and does not encourage people to invest the time needed to create a new issue based on the new need.

There is a suggestion to add this feature, although it is quite old (from 2005).  You may vote for it or watch it to see any progress.  It does note an elaborate work-around by changing workflow, and that obviously does not scale well for an entire site with lots of Jira projects.

Kind regards,

Hi @Chetan Krishna Sai Naidu_Jira-Admin 

That's not possible. Cloning is not a separate permission in Jira. All you can do is restrict the creation of issues (at the project level)

May I ask why you want to do this?

Cloning is not more than creating a new issue with the same values as the original issue. Users would still be able to clone issue manually by providing the field values themselves even if that button was not available.
