Is there a way to restrict access to either lists or card for board members on a trello board

 We are having a number of part-time contractors working for us in the Bitbucket cloud repository. The repository is associated with the trello board. We have a number of to do items on the trello board.

We need to restrict at least the right access to the to do items on the trello board. Is it possible to restrict access to a list for a card? I could not find anything in the settings but I have a free version of trello right now and I'm not sure if it is available in the paid versions of trello

Thank you for any inputs

Hi there!


Currently, Trello doesn't support per-card permissions—once someone has access to a board, they'll be able to see all cards on it. For now, we suggest creating separate boards for different permissions levels.


In the meantime, I’ll pass your feedback on to our team for consideration—let me know if there's any additional info you'd like for me to pass their way.

Thank you for your response. I don't see a way to create a separate trello board for the repository on Bitbucket cloud. As far as I understand, there can be only 1 trello board but repository on Bitbucket cloud. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thank you for being willing to forward the feedback to your team. I think restricting access in terms of not making some of the lists or cards visible is going to break the design philosophy. However, perhaps just restricting access in terms of not allowing the user to write to the list or card is good enough.

In our scenario, we are okay with the various contractors reading the to do lists and cards. However, it is going to be really problematic if someone inadvertently or intentionally corrupts the lists. Over time, the trello board can become really mission-critical and so we need a way to protect the data
Thank you. I'm marking your answer is resolved

Has there been any update on this feedback? Can we restrict on cards/lists in any way now?

Hi, I'm also very interested in such a function for specific cards restrained access regarding members of the board. Any update on this topic ?
