Are all of the Jira Epic field types defined in Jira documentation?

There are a few articles on Epic Name vs Epic Link, however there are additional Epic fields I am unclear of the definition/usage.  

If this is already documented, will you please point me in the right direction.

These are available in our instance:

  1. Epic/Theme - unclear
  2. Epic Color - sorta makes sense because of color box, but how does one query?
  3. Epic Group - unclear
  4. Epic Link - makes sense; returns issues associated with Epic
  5. Epic Name - ok, this is the short name
  6. Epic Status - understood

Mostly makes sense to me.  Just seems like there would be a chart or something ... ?

Hello @Angela 

Epic Group and Epic/Theme are not fields that are available to me in the Standard product plan, so I would guess they are either unique to the Premium plan or part of an additional app to which you have subscribed.

For querying against Epic Colour, you can see the available values by executing a search for Epics, using the List View for displaying the results, and adding the Epic Colour field to the output columns.

Well I feel like a bit of an idiot.  It occurred to me to lookup the fields in Admin.  Anyhow, there is a description for each.  Thanks!
