Epic color is not shown in Easy Agile Story Map view

Hi there,

we have installed the Easy Agile User Story Map plugin on JIRA. Currently we face the problem that the epic colors are not shown properly in the story map view. Some epics have no color at all, others have a different color than the one specified for the epic.

Any idea how to solve this?

Regards, Lars

Is the issue resolved. I am not seeing the EPIC or the Task Colors 

Hi Angana,

We weren't able to diagnose the problem in 2018 based on the information from Lars.

Firstly, can you confirm that you are using a Classic Jira Software Project? Since Epics in Next Gen Projects aren't coloured, they are all shown as purple in Easy Agile User Story Maps.

Can you provide us with some more details about this issue? Either here or via

  • Does this problem occur on the Jira backlog as well? Or is the issue that the Epic colours are not consistent with those on the Backlog?
  • Are all users experiencing this issue? If users see an incorrect colour, are they all seeing the same (incorrect) colour?
  • When the Epic colour is changed on the Backlog, does the colour on the User Story Map change at all, even if incorrectly?

Finally, what configuration do you use to add colours to your Task issue types? Unlike Epics, Jira doesn't natively store colours for Issues so we haven't had this request before.

Kind regards, 
Stephanie Seymour | Easy Agile 

Hi Angana, 

My apologies: on checking, I found that Next Gen Projects do now support Epic colours. 

The API for this, however, is different to the one we use to get data about Epic colours in Classic Projects. We'll need to put in some work to get feature parity on this. A ticket has been created with your vote on it. 

If you use Next Gen projects, that's why the colours aren't showing and you don't need to supply any other information. 

Would you like me to reach out when we've got this working? 

Kind regards,

Hi Stephanie,

Is this resolved? If not, when can I expect this to be addressed. Would be great if I get some timeline and any other workarounds if possible.



Hi Vinotha, 

This isn't currently on our short- to medium-term roadmap. 

Thanks for letting us know you're interested: we're a small, Agile team and use customer feedback like yours to prioritise upcoming work. 

Kind regards, 
Stephanie Seymour | Easy Agile 

Thanks @Lars Duelfer , @Angana Patel and @Vinotha Kumar for your patience! 

We've just released an update to Easy Agile User Story Maps to fix this. Next-gen epics will now have the correct colour. 

Kind regards, 
Stephanie Seymour | Easy Agile
