How do I get Epic Color in the new view?

Epic Color is on the field list for my project, but the new view excludes it.  How do I get it back into the new veiw?

Hi @Laurie Anci 

Are you trying to change the epic color for its display with issues?  If so:

  • for team-managed projects, when viewing the epic you may select the color next to the summary to edit to a new color
  • for company-managed projects, you may change the epic color the same as for team-managed, or change the color from the backlog's epic panel

If you mean something else, would you please clarify?  Thanks!

Best regards,


The view of the ticket (Epic) details on the right panel had Epic Color as a field.  With the new view pushed to us, the field is gone.  It is still there in the settings list of fields, but won't show up on the view list of fields.  

Thanks for clarifying. 

For the new issue view, when I open an epic in the side-bar (right side of page) I see the color as a selectable/editable item next to the summary name, and not as a field.  Would that work for you?
