Can other issue-types appear in the GreenHopper 'Epics' panel?

Or to put it another way, what is it about the 'Epic' issue-type that tells GreenHopper to put it in this panel? It can't be its name, as I can rename 'Epic' to anything I like and it still works.

We have a need to set up two projects, one which uses an issue-type called 'Requirement' and one which uses 'Epic'. We would like to be able to have both issue-types show up in the 'Epics' panel on the Rapid Boards. Can it be done? :-)

We're on JIRA 5.2.4 and GreenHopper 6.1.1.

Not possible, the code picks up just one issue type in the property entry tables.

Thanks, that's what I suspected :-(

I can tell you that the magic numbers are stored in these property keys...

Sorry, I've no idea what I'm looking at there...

Are there any plans to fix this? We have a legacy project in Jira with issues that we'd like visible in the EPICs panel without having to convert the issues to the Epic issue type.

This is by design, so I don't anticipate it being changed.

Ok. Can we rename Epic for something else and assign custom workflow to it? Will it broke something?

Apologies for the necro-post, but if people are still interested (and still happy to wait), see

I'd still avoid renaming epics to something else, but a change of description, inline translation and changing workflows are all ok now.
