Is it possible to make an issue tracking list only allow users to see the issues they have created? Normally under list settings I would do this under Advanced Settings but that option does not seem to be there.
SharePoint hides that section for:
1) Document Library
2) List created from issues list template
3) External lists.
ReadSecurity = 2 of your issues list programatically. I have not tried it but this is what SharePoint does behind the scene if that section was available in advanced settings page. Also set
SPList.WriteSecurity as per your need. SDK has more information on the ReadSecurity and WriteSecurity
2) Start with custom issues list instead of using Issues list template
