We want to allow our developers to Clone issues however we do not want them to change the Reporter of an issue. Cloning though changes the Reporter to the user Cloning the issue and since we have the permission of Modify Reporter set to Admins only no one other than Admins can Clone an issue.
Anyway, is there a way to have Cloning NOT change the reporter? That is what we ideally would like to have.
With the Clone Plus Plugin for JIRA you can create a custom clone action that forces the reporter to be the reporter of the original issue (set.reporter = @reporter@). In order to prevent the reporter field from showing up on the clone details screen, you would need to remove the field from the createIssue screen. How to use clone properties for customization has some details on how to set up this customization. You will also need to disable the standard clone operation - see How to customize.
