Automation can't do it.
As usual Bob Swift's excellent ACLI (Atlassian Command Line Interface) can.
You would use updateProject with --lead parameter. To change in Bulk, you could combine that with runFromProjectList
It would be something like:
acli --action runFromProjectList --regex "ZJIRACLIPROJECTS.*" \
--common "-a updateProject \
--project \"@project@\" --lead \"firstname.lastname@example.org\" " --continue
Or if you have a list of projects in a CSV where you need to bulk-change the lead, you could do something like this:
acli --action runFromCSV --file newleads.csv --common "-a updateProject \
--project \"@project@\" --lead \"@lead@\" " \
--options setReplacementVariables --continue
This assumes a newleads.csv file that looks like this:
Automation is for changing issues, not project settings. Also, there's no bulk change for project lead, as there's only one lead per project.
I don't remember seeing any app that would allow you to change the lead for multiple projects in one go, I'd be looking to scriptrunner to write some one-off code for it.
