Add color to issues in your plan

This page refers to the advanced planning features that are only available as part of Jira Cloud Premium and Enterprise.


To change the color of your timeline bars:

  1. Navigate to the View settings menu.

  2. Select which metric you’d like to color using the Color by dropdown menu. To switch back to the default gray, select None.

You can color code schedule bars on your timeline bars based on:

  • project

  • status

  • team

  • issue type

  • priority

  • components

  • labels

  • other configured custom fields

Components, labels, and custom fields are only available if they’ve been configured in your site. Find out how to add custom fields.

For custom coloring options (including component and labels), you can choose your color scheme. Once you select your custom field, use the + Add color dialogue that appears beneath the dropdown to create your coloring scheme.
