I'd like to hide fields depending on permissions. For example, I want to only Admins and my manager group users to be able to see a specific field in the EDIT screen.
I want to hide it from users that are not admins or managers.
I suppose you can remove these fields from the Edit screen, which will prevent ANYONE from editing their values.
After that create a separate screen and add your fields to it. Then create a workflow transition from a status and make it point right back to that status. Attach the screen you have created to this transition and also add a condition that would allow only members of a certain user group/project role to trigger it. This way those users will be able to set/edit your field values by triggering this transition but only as long as the issue is in that status. For other statuses you'll have to create separate similar transitions.
Naturally this can turn into a maintenance nightmare very quickly, especially if you have many complex workflows with a lot of statuses, so I strongly advise NOT to use this method, unless you absolutely have to.
