I'm trying to import a Jira Project into a new Server, however I am having trouble getting the configuration to match.
The Jira field for Epic Name and Epic Color are named differently in the source system. I managed to rename those.
However they are also linked to the Issuetype Epic, whereas I need them to be open to another Issuetype or all issuetypes.

For example I would set issuetype=NULL, and after startup that value set obviously gets deleted and a new one is created with the old configuration.
I also tried creating another dataset, so Epic Color would be open to two issuetypes. Doesn't work either.
I am fresh out of ideas how to get around that.
