How to create views in Jira in order to hide projects from showing?

We are a consulting firm with a lot of different customers. Our project leaders use Jira for planning and meet different customers over time.

The problem I am looking to solve is the scenario where our PL meets with customer A and uses Jira in a meeting to plan or follow up on a project. During such a meeting it is undesirable that information about other customers is displayed in any way.

Is there any way in Jira to let the PL easily hide information about other projects than the current one (in menus, dashboards etc)? In other words is it possible to create different "views" for a user?

The current solution is to create an additional user for the PL that only has access to the desired set of projects.


Any ideas and or pointers are welcome!

No, there's no view function, it's all based on user permissions.

I suspect your current approach is the only option.
