Can you change color of my icon? Edited

Hello @SoYeon Christina,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

The color for avatars is chosen based on an algorithm and it's not possible to change that. There was a feature suggesting that, but it was closed since it's possible to upload your own avatar.

Many thanks for this Suggestion, however, this is not something we plan to add to JIRA Agile at this time.

The color is chosen based on an algorithm using the name, unfortunately in this case the same result is occurring. It may be that this is remedied in the future if the color palette is extended but we will not be changing this automatic avatar type to have a manual override.

As a workaround, you can generate your own avatar with your initials.

I found the websites below where you can create the avatar and choose the color you prefer:

Hope this helps!

Kind regards,
