Can I view/edit the JIRA Portfolio Theme field in JIRA?

In JIRA Portfolio I can define Themes and assign them to epics or stories. When I view those issues in JIRA, can I see the associated Theme there?

I looked in the Custom Fields but there isn't one called 'Theme'.

The documentation section Showing Portfolio custom fields in JIRA Software doesn't mention it.

I'm also looking forward to get the answer from Atlassian support. It's very confusing, documentation is very poor.

I received an answer from Atlassian on this question recently: 'The theme field actually isn't intended to be shown in JIRA Software.'


Bad news. :(

My problem is that after creating a new issue I need to refresh manually and separately the portfolio every time, since for example a new story as a child under the epic with a given Theme label will not get the Theme label automatically.

So the report in this current format is totally useless unless I manually check all the issues in the backlog every time and add the Theme label one by one.

That's make this very painful.
