What values are used to query Epic Color?

Hello,

I'm using Epic Color to diferentiate Themes amongst our list of epics. I would like to be able to query that for charts. I noticed "epic colour" is available in JQL queries, but I don't know how to determine the value of the colors we have set.

Anyone know the values associated with the different Epic Colors?

Thanks,

Ken

This is what our color values are in JIRA Cloud.  I assume the values will be the same in all versions, but I don't know for sure.

"Epic Color" = ghx-label-1815b3a
"Epic Color" = ghx-label-2f79132
"Epic Color" = ghx-label-3d39d3f
"Epic Color" = ghx-label-43b80c4
"Epic Color" = ghx-label-54a6785
"Epic Color" = ghx-label-68fb021
"Epic Color" = ghx-label-7ac707a
"Epic Color" = ghx-label-8644982
"Epic Color" = ghx-label-9f15c75

Images disappeared:

1 - brown

2 - orange

3 - light brown

4 - blue

5 - dark blue/gray

6 - olive green

7 - dark coral pink

8 - dark purple

No.  Can someone from Atlassian answer this?  What are the available settings for "epic colour"?

Thanks!

I posted about this in the support section and got this answer:

Please note that while the Epic Colour field wasn't designed to be used in search, there's a workaround you could use to expose it's values and use them in the Issue Navigator.

  1. Add the Epic Colour field to the screen relevant to the Issue View of your Epics (the specific screen will depend on the project configuration).
  2. Display Epics of different colours in the Issue View.
  3. Note down the Epic Colour value displayed in the Issue View.
  4. Use the noted values when searching for issues with JQL queries.

I hope this helps! If there's anything that requires clarification, please let me know.

Cheers,
Dora

This worked for me, but it still wasn't really what I was after since only epics can have colors, and I was trying to look for stories with a specific epic link color.

Hi, I am looking for the same information. It would be great to set a board filter based on the epic color. Thanks, Paula

Hi, Have any of you guys figured this out? I've tried with HEX codes but it isn't working. Thanks, Daniel

+1, need this as well.

Is there any possibility to add more epic colour or hex(#ff0000) in scrum board?

Can we get #000000? I only work in black. And sometimes very very dark grey.

https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/277554 describes a workaround for a very old version of JIRA, but it is not working in any recent version.

Epic colors can be picked from a Backlog Board by showing the Epics in left side panel and then clicking the colored drop down arrow and from the displayed pop-up of the 14 available colors. 

 

But I want to use a custom color (company color) and the desired one is not available in the nine colors I can choose.

The new 14 colours are also only on Cloud, not Server - why they can't just add a colour picker, or at least allow for hex support as it used to I've no idea.

Server version only have 9 colors to choose from.

Hi ,

I think

https://atlassian.design/server/foundations/colors/

this will suffice all our need for atlassian color schemes.
