Permission for bulk change for particular role or Project

Currently, Bulk change permission is defined as global in Jira. Is there any way where bulk change permission can be assigned to a particular  role, group or Project?


Thanks in  Advance.

Hi Nayanpriya,


Bulk Change permission can be restricted to some group withion the Global Permission page. Also note that Bulk operations are also subject to project specific permissions, a per documentation says:


Permission to execute the bulk operations within JIRA:
- Bulk Edit *
- Bulk Move *
- Bulk Workflow Transition
- Bulk Delete *
( * subject to project-specific permissions .)

The decision to grant the Bulk Change permission should be considered carefully. This permission grants users the ability to modify a collection of issues at once. For example, in JIRA installations configured to run in Public mode (i.e. anybody can sign up and create issues), a user with the Bulk Change global permission and the Add Comments project permission could comment on all accessible issues. Undoing such modifications may not be possible through the JIRA application interface and may require changes made directly against the database (which is not recommended).


So you need to properly configure the permission at both global and project level to restrict the bulk changes.




Let us know if this answer solves your doubts,


Hi Jack,


I want to assign bulk change permission to a specific group/role for a particular project. This group/role should not have bulk change permission for any other project. Is this possible? If yes, how?
