The documentation states that the group name is case sensitive, but JIRA converts all groups to lower case. Thus, we discovered that all project admins (not just leads as documented) are seemingly able to bulk clone in their project.
Is there a workaround or a way of fixing this? We don't want to use roles as project admins could privilege escalate average users without system admin approval. Ideally we would restrict it to a very small number of users via a BulkClone group that was read correctly.
A piece of feedback to consider for the future is that I as an admin would like to configure whether or not admins and project leads could do bulk clone. My ideal setting would be having it be strictly a whitelist of users and/or groups, but even just the bulkclone group would be adequate. I don't necessarily trust all project admins with this power, even if it is just their own project.
Jason, Based on your input we have come to the conclusion that this could be beneficial for most users of BulkClone. We have therefore re-designed the User Management in the latest version 1.0.17 now to be found at: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.lbcg.jira.plugins.bulkclone.BulkClone The Project Lead and Project Administrators are no longer allowed to BulkClone by default, it needs to be an active choice mapping to a specific project role or group, see more details in the release notes.

Not all installed JIRA instances converts the groups to lower case, it depends on the JIRA configuration.
Regarding the Project Administrator having the right to BulkClone, yes this is by design, alternatively you could grant them "Developers" rights to restrict this.
For the lowercase issue on JIRA Groups, we will provide a fix to cater for this shortly, stay tuned..
