Can I limit access to users for specific columns?

We use Kanban and have 6 columns.  First one being Scoping and second one being ToDo.  Is there a way I can prohibit developers group to view the Issues in the Scoping Column ?  therefore they will only get to see the issue when the Product Manager moves the issue from Scoping to the ToDo ?

Thank you

You can, but it's not particularly pretty. 

You can't hide the column directly, but look at the status that are in it (often it will only be one)

Now go to the workflow the project is using and find the status you want to hide.  You can use "workflow properties" to remove the developers group's access to the issue while it is in that status.  See jira.permission.* on

Another option is similar - create an issue security scheme that has a level that prevents the developers from seeing the issue, and apply that level when going into the status, and remove it on the way out (via workflow post functions)
