Jira gives my stories colorful feature links but suddenly they are all grey?

My features have a summary and a "feature name."

The features I've had for a while all have pretty colorful displays for "feature name" which makes it easier to review my backlog. My product owner can review all the pink flagged stories first, for example, to make sure the whole feature is present.

When I create a new feature, though, the color of the "feature name" doesn't get set, so all of my feature flags on stories are now grey.

I don't see anywhere that I can see or adjust that - does anyone have ideas on where to look?

From here, you'll see a color box at the top left of the screen.  You can click on it and change the color.

ah yes that's the issue! epics were renamed to features so some features are more feature than others. :D
