How to use clone properties for customization shows how to customize the Clone Plus Plugin for JIRA. Specifically, you can condition a clone operation to only show up based on project, issue type, and status.

# When does this action show on UI? Only for project ZCLONE bugs (id = 1) in resolved (id = 5) state
1.condition.ZCLONE.1.5 = true

Multiple conditions can be specified or generics used.

thank you, i used that plugin

Set this script in the annoucement banner, adjust the status string as per your requirement.

<script type='text/javascript'>
AJS.$(document).ready(function() {
    var status = AJS.$("#status-val").find('img').eq(0).attr("alt");
    if(status != 0 && status != "Open") {

I would sugest to disable Clone operation using permission scheme and provide Clone workflow action using built-in postfunction in Script Runner plugin. This Clone action would be available only in given state.
