Overview

'Colors for JIRA' provides JQL-based color highlighting for enhanced issue navigation.
The plugin adds a dropdown to all supported screens, in which you can select a user configured color scheme that will be applied to all issues visible on the screen.
Color schemes are sets of JQL queries and corresponding colors.
Highlighting is displayed as small colored tags around issue keys:

The dropdown shows either the name of the currently selected scheme, or 'No color'.
The content of the dropdown is split into to 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 colors scheme settings are accessible from the 'Colors' menu item in 'Settings -> Add-ons'.

Managing color schemes

 

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:
 
Each rule consists of a JQL query and a color. The dialog only accepts valid JQL queries:
 
You can change the order of coloring rules by dragging and dropping:
