Just highlight the row by clicking the narrow grey placeholder at the left side of that row. It will highlight the entire row.
Then, you will see a tiny arrow appear when you hover over any cell in that row.
Clicking the arrow will pop up a menu where you can select background color:
I've performed this action, but for some reason the option change Cell Background still isn't showing. I do see the options for Insert/Remove etc. Any other thoughts for why this might be? The tables that have colors I need to change, are being copy/pasted from word and already contain a color -- However, I need to change the color it pastes in.
Yea. I’m wondering if this is a software version specific feature, one that may be disabled under certain cases of copy/pasting text, or as someone else has suggested, perhaps there’s a switch which administrators have turned off. It was definitely not there for me despite looking in many locations beyond the one suggested.
I just ran into this. It's a bug.
What I describe here is all in Jira, not Confluence.
The cell color is available when you click Create and add a table to the Description field, but after saving the issue, the option is no longer in the cell menu when you return to the issue to edit it.
Now I have a table with half the cells colored that I wanted and can't color the rest!

As a workaround you can update the issue by api on /rest/api/3/issue/$issueNumber by passing an attrs object to the tableCell or tableHeader
Here is a full example of description field
