Definition of colors used for Epics

Epics can have a color assigned to them. Is that list of colors (canonical names, RGB, hex, etc.) listed anywhere? I looked around, but couldn't find anything.

Thank you Alexis. I see how to apply this label when I create an Epic, but it doesn't seem possible to use it to re-assign colors to an existing Epic. It seems that I can add the Epic Color field to the screen, but it doesn't actually appear.

Is there anything which defines, say, ghx-label-1 as #000000, and similarly for the others? Knowing that would make it easier to refer to Jira colors in supporting documentation.

Hi @john_trasler , 


here's the current color code for Jira epics :

Let me know if this helps, 



"fields": {
"customfield_10017": choose one -> "purple, blue, green, teal, yellow, orange, grey, dark_purple, dark_blue, dark_green, dark_teal, dark_yellow, dark_orange, dark_grey]"
