No Bulk operation available in JIRA 6.4-OD-04-006 on demand

Hi There

I am a JIRA On Demand user. Current version is 6.4-OD-04-006.

When listing a filter I do not have any operation in the Tools menu anymore, e.g. Bulk Edit. When I open the Tools menu it shows "No Available Option(s)".

Is that a bug or does it work differently in the new release?

Best regards,

Hi George,

Did you look if you have the 'Bulk Change' global permission?


Yes, indeed that was it. I always had this permission before so it must have been changed with one of the latest JIRA upgrades where I noticed that group names have changed. Maybe something that Atlassian should look into or at least notify about this. Thanks, George

Where can this permission be set?

I hate jira for its unintuitiveness.
Jira help mostly states that something is possible but does say where to go in the mass of options to actually do it.

I know this is more than 2 years after you left that comment, but for the sake of anyone who comes to this thread in the future, here are the steps that I just went through to enable this permission:

  1. Click the gear icon in top-right corner.
  2. Click "System" under "Jira Settings".
  3. Click "Global Permissions".
  4. At the bottom of that page (under the "Grant Permission" header):
    1. In the 1st drop-down list, select "Make bulk changes".
    2. In the 2nd drop-down list, type out the name of the user or group you want to give access to, and click on it when you see it in the drop-down list. (Note: For me, I had to actually type out the entire name of each group, i.e., "site-admins" without the quotes, before it appeared in the drop-down list.)
    3. Then click the "Add" button.
