How can I change the color used as the background to an epic's name, as seen from the Active Sprint or Backlog view? In the old UI, the color displayed in the Epics panel (visible from the Backlog view) was a dropdown with a color picker, but with the redesign that's no longer the case and I can't find an equivalent configuration option.

 

I have two similar, but distinct Epics in this sprint that are both showing up with the same gray background, which is super confusing at first glance.

From the backlog, open the epic you want to change the color on and select view details. From here just click on the color square next to the summary and select the color you want.

For me, there was no longer an Epics panel in the Backlog. I eventually found my way to "View Settings":

 


  • Click "View Settings" in the top right of the page

  • Turn on "Epic panel"

Only then was I able to follow the steps in Mikael's answer.
