Insight: Restrict the view of objects to current and related user?

We are looking at storing data in Insight which only should be visible by either the person logged in and the persons leader. (The persons leader will be stored on the user object in Insight.)

Is this possible to acchieve somehow?

(Insight permissions does to my knowledge only supprort Jira Users and Groups, not placeholders and IQLs)

Hi Johannes,

Permissions can be set for Insight, Object Schemas, and Object Types, based on user or groups, and just like you mentioned, not possible to use placeholders or IQL.

You can read about permissions at

We have planned to look at the permissions this year to make it more granular, and enable permissions set on object level as one example. Feel free to create an feature request at, and take a look at this search for current tickets:

If you feel like this answered your question, please mark it as accepted :)


Thanks! I see there are many others having the same requirement, looking forward to the more granular permission management:)

I think this question needs to be picked up again, since Atlassian picked up insight i cannot see that this kind of granularity has been implemented, nor can i find any ticket on their JIRA corresponding to this issue and the old links to RIADA are dead..


So yeah, I think it would be a neat feature to be able to restrict the view of certain objects to only users that are linked to it.
