Hide table column but keep the rules


I am trying pull data from mysql table and show the columns on table panel.

My table consists of status of builds and build number and some other strings.
I want to show status of a build and environment on table. But I dont want to show status but instead use the values to change the color of the table.

So here I dont want to show the buildstatus column but instead just change the color of the row based on the values.
Here are the rules for that column.

But when I choose to hide the column. The rules also disappear. Can you guide me how I can hide a column but keep the rules.

It would be great if we have this feature. This is useful in many scenarios
