The coloured rectangles refer to the Epic that the issue belongs to. You can configure the colour for your Epic by looking at the Epics panel and clicking on the little drop-down array right next to the name of the epic.


Hi @michal_kabat  -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

What problem are you trying to solve?

Each issue (card) on the board is in a status, mapped to a column.  So the status is already noted at the top of the column.

Best regards,

Many thanks for your replies - you are absolutely right - it is an Epic, not a status!

I thought it was possible to display the status in the following format on the card:

Turns out it is only possible to be display it on the card as a gray text.

Appreciate your help!
