Field Security Plugin - How Robust Are Permissions?

I've reviewed the documentation, but the security permissions don't seem to include actual field values from the issues being reviewed.

I can see where Group-A can have permission to view/update Field-A, but I'm wondering if you can setup the following permission types:

Group-A has view/update of Field-A IF Field-B = Value-B or Field-C = Value-C


McDonald's Group has view/update access to Sensitive-Data-Field IF Client = McDonald's or Platform = MCD.


Is this possible?  Based on the few screenshots I saw, it doesn't appear to be this robust.

You can have permission dependencies only on User or Group Fields

User is in Field A


Group is in Field B

beside that there are no dependencies on custom fields.
