Limit visibility of tickets in an Agile Board

New to YouTrack, so I apologize if I'm asking something obvious. My goal is to allow users to view what position their ticket is currently in the overall queue, but I do not want them to view the details of tickets that they are not the customers of; the tickets they do not have access to should appear like a black box. Goes without saying I also definitely do not want them to be able to modify anything; just a read only board. Is this possible via the Agile Board view?

Unfortunately, there's no such option in YouTrack. Feel free to describe the feature request more detailed in our tracking system .


You will be able to receive the answer directly from our developers while other users will be able to write their opinion of your proposal.


Thank you for your quick response

Actually it used to be this option! 

I've just been updated with the new Youtrack version. It's kinda awesome but some features disapeared.  I used to highly customize Agile Board with custom set of tickets and I can't anymore.

For exampe, I maintain my product backlog with an Agile board and three states (inbox, specs in progress, ready for dev) but I only want Feature Requests & User stories. I did that with a custom search.

Now, with the update, my board is polluted with Tasks and Bugs. Is this permanent?

I see, I am not the only one, who miss Query of agile board. We use boards specific for System (Android, iOS, WP, ...). Since query is gone, boards are pure chaos (everything is everywhere, something nowhere). Trying to fix it, but there is no simple solution. Still hope Query will be returned, because it was usefull feature. 


For now, my workaround has been to split the project into two separate projects. One for me, the product owner, where I can work my User stories and stuff, and one for the team, where they can pull ready-for-dev user stories and work them.

Let's be honest: this is more work than it used to be + the way issues behave when passed from a project to another is undocumented therefore pretty unclear. 


This is an option for board visibility, which remained in the version 7.0.



Where is this? I can't find it.



It is probably misunderstanding.
We are talking (writing) about "query" and it is not in version 7.
We miss it very much.
