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.

what's customfield_10017?

Hey @Michael Aglas , this custom field number might be different in your Atlassian/Jira instance. I had the same question and found the custom field number by visiting this URL: https://<yourinstanceurl>/rest/api/2/issue/<issuekey>?expand=names

The issue key is the number of any of your epics. So, for me the URL was:
