Insight is configured to automatically grant the Insight Administrators role to all jira-administrators. However, Insight will not necessarily inherit permissions from any particular active directory (AD) configuration running on your Jira instance.
For example, if you are using Crowd SSO you can temporarily create a jira-administrators group in Crowd, which will map with the local jira-administrators group on Service Desk and allow you to do operations in Insight.
In global settings you can specify who should have administrative permissions in Insight.
People assigned to the Insight Administrator role can perform all actions in Insight.
In order to change permissions you need to have the global permission JIRA Administrators.
Object Schema Permissions
Open your object schema and select "Configure" in the drop down menu
By selecting the "Roles" tab you can set the object schema permissions.
You can set the groups or users who should be the object schema managers, object schema developers and object schema users by clicking the row you wish to edit.
The short explanation of the different roles is that Users can view, Developers can also create/edit and Managers can perform all actions within the schema. More detail in the table below.

Object Type Permissions
You can set permissions for a specific object type by selecting "Configure" in the Object Type dropdown menu
The object type permissions work the same way as the schema ones but on the object type level and have a higher priority in case of a clash. For example it is possible to allow more users to create objects of a certain type by having the object type permissions more general than the schema permissions, on the other hand it is also possible to restrict the number of users who can view certain objects by setting the type permission to be more strict than corresponding schema permissions.
It is however not possible to limit the actions of an Object Schema Manager and a user must be an Object Schema User to be able to view anything in the schema, regardless of type permissions.
If no object type permissions are set all permissions are granted according to the object schema permissions.
