Is there a way to limit what a user can see in a particular project

Is there a way to define a group of users which are only allowed to view and edit Jiras which they have created?

My use case is that in particular Jira projects I would like to give my external customers the possibility to view and enter Jiras. However, I would like to restrict their view only on those entered by them but not Jiras entered by the internal team.

You can apply a security scheme to the project that limits users to only issues they created unless they are in a particular role.

You may want to investigate Issue Level Security. This will require tweaking to your project permission scheme as well. You may also need a validation or post function to say that if user is in X group, to set the issue security as X. I have not gotten to that step to allow a restricted user to see the issue they submitted because the default setting I needed for the issue security scheme was to be restricted. So they could create their issues but not see them until someone else made it visible.

I will definitely follow this question to see if what I think will work actually works :-)
