Is it possible to limit issue visibility by issue type without running a script?

On my projects, I have multiple issue types, and two groups: groups A and B. I want to configure JIRA such that group A can see all issue types and group B can only see issues of type Story.

I've been playing around with issue security schemes and workflows to try to find a solution, but so far it seems that any solution requires using ScriptRunner. I tried the solution proposed in the top answer here:

But since there is no existing post-function in JIRA that allows you to set issues to a given security level, I think I would have to use ScriptRunner to run a custom post-function. The closest I can find is "Set issue security level based on user's project role." But this sets the issue security level based on the user's project role.

So, is there a way to set the security level of issues in a project by type without using ScriptRunner?

Thanks for any help.

If it is possible to use user's project roles to set issue security level you can create a Role A (and assign group A to it) and Role B (and assign group B to it), right?
