Colors for JIRA provides JQL-based color highlighting for enhanced issue navigation.
The plugin adds a dropdown menu to JIRA pages, which allows a user to apply one of the user-configured color schemes to all issues visible on the screen. Color schemes are sets of JQL queries and their corresponding colors.
After the highlighting is applied, small colored tags appear around issue keys:
The dropdown menu shows either the name of the currently selected scheme, or 'No scheme'.
The contents of the dropdown is split into two sections: 'My Schemes' and 'Global Schemes'.
You can access your own color scheme settings directly from the dropdown via the 'Manage My Colors' option.
Global color schemes settings are accessible from the 'Colors' menu item in 'Settings -> Add-ons'.
The color schemes editor is the same for user color schemes and global color schemes.
In the editor you can create new color schemes and add coloring rules to them:
In Highlight Whole Row mode the Colors highlights the whole issue row with the configured color.
You can toggle the mode with Color Scheme dropdown.
A selected coloring mode applies to all pages.
