Atlassian Community Hero Image Collage


I'm a veteran user but new to being a jira admin. I was able to set my team/screens/issues/workflows up but I'm finding that my epic colors aren't displaying on my cards.

When looking at the backlog list view I select to expand "Epics" and I select to change the color.... but it still only displays grey. Any thoughts?



And just for fun.....

As a jira user

I can see epic colors

so that I can easily differentiate between epics at a glance


Hi Erika,

Although it seems like your question/problem is described pretty well I'd like to ask for a bit more information:

  • Are you using Jira Cloud or Server?
  • Can you share a screenshot with us as this is worth a thousand words?



Hi Maarten :)


So I was fighting with it all day yesterday and suddenly the epic link color started appearing on the stories.............but then it disappeared from my cards D:

I looked under Board Settings>Card Layout, but I don't see the option to add it back there. 





Hi Erika,

Thanks for the extra info. I think your board has Epic Labels toggled off. You can simply toggle it off using the board menu:
