JIRA Color Custom Field - What do I put in the select values to get the colors to show up?

Susan Hauth Community Champion Oct 31, 2013


Sorry for being so thick, but I really don't understand what values I'm to put in the select list as the JIRA Admin for colors to show up. I tried some hex values, html, but nothing worked. I want the colors (primary), red, green, yellow as the selections.

The documentation and screen shots, don't really explain how to do this?

From memory, it should accept hex values, but I used to use it with plain, unencoded English colour names - Red, Green, Yellow, Black, Gray etc

Too funny...you're right!! I just put in red yellow green...and voila it worked. The hex didn't seem to

I've found that some but not all hex codes work...not sure if there's a pattern I'm not recognizing as I'm pretty ignorant to this stuff, but the mechanism works.
