How do you change the background color in Jira?

David Camilleri February 15, 2024

Re https://support.atlassian.com/jira-work-management/docs/change-the-project-background-color/ ... I'm a Jira admin but I don't see the paint bucket icon next to the project name. How do I get to that screen?

Hi 

Is your project a work management project in Jira? Because only in Jira Work Management  we can change the color. It's not available for Jira Service Management and Jira Software projects. The link you mentioned is specific to Jira Work Management projects. Only in JWM we can edit the color specifically for each  project.

Thank you.

Hi @Jerrold - Empyra,

according to my comment here (https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Software-questions/Re-Re-does-anyone-know-how-to-change-the-background-col/qaq-p/2617481/comment-id/924344#M924344) I'd like to ask, if it would be possible, to get the coloring feature also in Jira Software.

Thank you!

Regards, Mario

Hi @Mario Muetze 

I have reviewed your comment, and it seems that you are looking for a way to differentiate between external and internal issues by using different colors on the board. One possible approach is to assign specific card colors to external issues and another set of card colors to internal issues.

It will look like this

I can assist with configuring the card colors on your board if that would be helpful.

Thank you.

I think it is a different issue and the same question that I am having: Is it possible to set a background colour to a board (not the cards)?

This is a feature you can use in Trello and in Jira Work Management. The latter offers a simple paint bucket icon next to the title for administrators. If you work in different projects and boards, this feature gives you a very good sense of your context. 

I have not found this possibility for Jira Software Projects yet, which is what we use primarily. Is this planned to be implemented?
