Hi Laurie,

The value is actually stored in a field called Epic Color. You can change it by adding that field to the screen used by Epics on that project or through the Bulk change projess.

Here is a link to the codes/values for the colors:

Hi @Laurie Anci,

Just on the issue card itself, click the coloured square next to the issue title and choose from the available options:

Hope this helps!

Or from the Epics panel in the scrum/kanban board of a company managed project, you can still select a color from the little color marker next to each epic:

Thank you so very much. I want to add a different color to each Epic within the Kanban board and couldn't figure out how to do this but now, I know.  I'll try this now and let you know if I was successful. . .
