Hi @Rhita Chatila,
I assume with "the new JIRA version" you mean the new UI Experience on Cloud? If not, what version are you on?
In Cloud, go to the Backlog view of the board that has you Epics. On the left hand side, expand the Epic panel. Next to each Epic in the list you will see a small coloured triangle. When you click that, you will be able to change Epic colour:
Setting the colors can - to my knowledge - only be done via a scrum board, create a scrumboard for all the projects combined (if you have overarching Epics, that is the easiest) and set the epic colors per epic in the scrum board - backlog view. From that moment on the epic colors are reflected in the related kanban boards as well.
So a small work around, but it worked well (and efficiently) for me.
Hi! Thank you for your advice. I tried as you mentioned, created a new Scrum project but I had no success changing epic's colors.
I started with a next-gen Kanban project and my team and I put some work on with stories and epics. Those epics are the ones we want to change color for better visual feedback.
I tried you strategy to create a new (next-gen) Scrum project but the interface is very similar, only almost all features turned on. I created example epics in the Roadmap section and then moved back to backlog. I couldn't see the Epics sidebar so I'm still stuck with the same problem.
I think you're strategy only works on classic Jira projects.
Hi Joshua, you can create an additional Scrum board in Kanban projects as well. Just create a board not a new project. I just redid my above instruction for a project in which my epics didn't have colors yet, and it worked.
Please use the pics to see if we are talking about the same thing.
I hope it helps.
It is working in Kanban Project in Back lock section as well in Server version.
Steps to edit the Epic Color:
1. Go to the project and open the Respective board.
2. Click on Backlog at left side.
3. Click EPICS on the left side of the board (aligned vertically) to open it.
4.Click the arrow next to the epic's name, then choose the color from the menu.
