Epic color tags not filled anymore - Can this be reverted/configured?

We use JIRA OnDemand and JIRA Agile for our development planning. Recently, there was an update that changed those colored Epic tags to be outlined and not filled anymore.

I really don't like this change, because it is way more harder so spot related tickets in the backlog based on the epic color - have a look at "blue", "dark blue", "purple" and "brown". Depending on your monitor and the brightness of the daylight, it is very hard to see the difference.

Is there any way to configure this in OnDemand, so those epic tags are color-filled again?

Hi Timo,

Unfortunately there's no way to configure epic colors in the recent versions of JIRA Agile (6.3.7 onwards). There have been several requests to revert to the old background fill color, though. You may want to follow Ability to change the Epic Labels Colour Palette for future updates.



I agree. I'm not sure why something was removed and the reason for investing resources into making this change and making it a priority to chance. It now makes it much, much harder to see the epics.



It seems that this is still an issue and the fix mentioned above didnt really address the problem.  Reverting back to old colours is not allowing users to customise them =/

They seem to be locked in the latest version of JIRA...
