How can I change the color of an Epic in Agility Project

Hi there,


I would love to change the color of epics for the benefit of overview on the "board" view grouped by adresees - how can I do this? Right now it is only a purple wall ;-)


Thank you & best

I'm eager to see this feature implemented on Jira. I already upvoted and watched the feature request.

@Romy Lindenberg I don't believe that there is a way to do this in Next Gen projects. I can follow @Scott Theus's suggestion for a classic project however the next gen projects seem to lack this functionality.

I would upvote a feature request!

why am I forced to log in to read support threads?

@Mike Solomon, It looks like you are correct...the functionality does not exist for Next-Gen projects.  I've added a suggestion for Atlassian at CONFCLOUD-64328 for you and @Romy Lindenberg.


(BTW...if this helps please mark this answer as "accepted" so others can find it easily.) 

@Scott Theus heads up that the feature request that was made looks like a Confluence Cloud request - I would think we would want a Jira Cloud request

Thanks @Mike Solomon, I've recreated it as JSWCLOUD-17198.

Hi @Romy Lindenberg,

There is a field called "Epic Color," you can find some documentation on changing it here:

I use these for Scrum and Kanban boards, I haven't tried it with an Agility board. 

There is more information here:

Hope this helps,
