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.
