Card level permissions with labels

Is it possible to limit certain users from seeing some cards on the board or rather is it possible to make it so that users see only specifically labeled cards?

 

If not, is there an easy way to create a "duplicate board" where changes to some cards affect both boards? So we could create one board with all the cards, and a duplicate with only cards with a specific label. So that someone wouldn't have to make sure both boards are synced.

Right now, card specific permissions are not available for boards in Trello. Once a user has access to a board, they will be able to see all cards on it.

Your best bet is indeed to create different boards with the cards required. You can copy specific cards, lists or the entire board and then remove any unwanted cards: http://help.trello.com/article/802-copying-cards-lists-or-boards

Thanks for the swift reply! Shame this isn't supported

Same - looking for this feature.  Either that or have an ability to view ALL boards' relevant cards/deadlines, etc into one view.

Same - we our team want this kind of feature: otherwise need to think another app that works. Atlassian team suggestion is helpful but bothers us to spend time to work on.

Also becoming quite the dealbreaker. Unito seems to be the only way to do something like this. Basically our solution is to have Unito automatically sync all cards from our executive-access board with a certain label to a separate board and back. Then that secondary board will only see the cards with the label, for their project.

Added benefit over the manual process is that when something is changed it reflects back on the executive-access board.

Major downside right now though is that Unito doesn't seem to be able to sync checklists within cards, as well as any traits which are power-ups.

Is this functionality in the pipeline?

I'm interested in this functionality, too.

Our team's use case: 

One board for all projects, to distinguish between departments and projects we use labels, e.g. a yellow "abc.com" label (when working on developing abc.com website) and "design" (for tasks related to, well, design). This way anybody on the team can easily filter for cards they want to focus on right now.

That's how it runs internally, and no restrictions required in our small team, but when it comes to the client, we can't give them access to entire board, as those from abc.com will see cards for xyz.org project and vice versa. Having card-specific permissions (based on labelling rules, and maybe some other rules like "has comment mentioning the external user") would make our lives much more easier.

It seems like a big drawback. I would like to put personnel details in cards with each employee having access to their own card. Creating a board for each employee seems like a lot of clutter and inefficiency

This feature is usually requested by my clients who want to use trello.
Is it possible with API and some extra service ? Make rules which cards to clone real time to another board, or better yet, make view of board with only pre-filtered cards visible. And have read only rigths + secret link or login with password only (not trello user registering!)
