Can i change the color of a status

Dennis de Laat February 22, 2024

Hi there, 

I want to change the color of a status in my board. 

I use it as a sales pipeline, I want the color of 'lost' to be red instead of green (that is for the status won) can I adjust this?"

Hi Dennis - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

You cannot change the color of a status like that if you are referring to the actual status category.

Its only blue grey and green right?

Hi @Dennis de Laat ,

Yes, it is possible to change the color of a status in Jira. The status colours refer to status categories - To Do (Grey), In Progress (Blue) and Done (Green). If you are using Jira Cloud and wants to change the colour of a status between these categories.

  1. Go to Jira Settings > Issues > Statuses (on the left-hand menu)
  2. Press Edit next to the status you want to change the category for
  3. Change the Category and press Save.

If you want more colours, you'll need to get an app for this - such as New Status Colors PRO for Jira Cloud.

Regards,
Bhushan
