Is it possible to change colour of an Epic in next-gen scrum project?

I found a way to assign a colour in classic scrum..but not in the new version.

Hi everyone,

A new feature request has been created to extend the number of colors available for next-gen epics. Please see the link below (vote and watch, perhaps?)

Thanks, voted and watching. I also commented on it about the legend issue/question I mentioned above.

I voted and commented also.  Thanks!

This feature has been delivered and you are now able to change the color of an epic in a next-gen project :)

To do so, go to the roadmap, click on an epic and then click on the color next to the epic's title

The feature has indeed been implemented, but with a significant regression: the 14 colour choices have been reduced to 6 (plus grey for done). While this may seem a minor issue, it is an annoying inconvenience having to prioritise colouring during the planning session.

Please introduce additional colours or add a general colour choice scheme to finalise this feature.

@Claudiu Lionte - Do you know if there is a way to add a legend for the colors? I have others looking at the roadmap and wanting to know what the colors mean that our PM setup.

I run out of colors pretty quickly. Can't I just introduce my own colors using a color picker and hex codes?

Great! It'd be great to have more than 6 colors available.

Yes! let us choose our own colors please

+1 - Please let us use more colors! Custom colors would be by far better than preset colors.

Hi @Mike Solomon and @Simeon G - we have this feature very highly prioritised, so stay tuned! 

Can't wait. Components&Colour code is a biggest missing feature for me at next-gen templates. The rest works perfectly

@Bree Davies Do you have any raw ETA? My company is migrating to Jira, and I am trying to setup everything.  So I ether create 4-5 projects for each module, or just create one and wait for a month until you bring components

Hello. please take into account the status of the epics. In my roadmap I want to be able to distinguish one epic that is in progress and another that is in delivery

Any progress on this feature? There has been no activity for nearly 3 months now (on this thread or on the associated ticket )
