Restricting access to Insights
- Restricted agents (Professional) You can restrict agents by group, organization, or assigned tickets, and those agents will not be able to view any Insights reports. To do so, see Adding a user and set access to Tickets within this agent's groups(s), Ticket in agent's org, or Assigned tickets only.
- Custom roles (Enterprise) You can create custom roles to give agents view only or no access to Insights. To do so, see Creating custom roles, and set the report access to Can view only or Cannot view.
- Light agents (Professional Add-on and Enterprise) By default light agents are already limited to view only access in Insights. You can change light agent permission so that they cannot view reports. To do so, edit the Light Agent role, and change report access in the Agent workflow section to Cannot view.
