Customizing the Planning Board (filtering/excluding Issues)

Does anybody knows, if it's possible to "hide" or "exclude" issues (for example of a certain component or certain user) from the Planning Board?

We want to use Greenhooper/Scrum in our Softwaredevelopment Project. The developers should only focus on their Technical Tasks. Everthing else (like quality assurance-/ project-management-/ configuration- and other supporting-processes-tasks/issues) should not be visible for them. To be able to track this kind of issues, I'd create special Jira Components.

To do our Release Planning, we want to use the Greenhoppers Planning Board. But the Planning Board automatically shows ALL issues of the project. With hundreds of tasks it might become very confusing.

I mean I can filter the view to show only issues of one component and/or user, but - so far I have seen - it's impossible show all Issues of all components/users (except a component, like "project management task" or "organizational tasks").

Thanks in advance

You can do this using Contexts.

Thank you.
