User Guides

1.1 View all labels in one place (per project)

In order to view all labels and number of issues under a specific label, click on Manage Labels tab on left sidebar in your Jira project.


1.2 View all labels in one place (globally)

Sometimes you might want to administer labels system wide affecting all projects. To do so, go to Jira top navigation and find Manage Labels.


If you are admin or have correct permissions, it should look like below:


2.1 View all issues under a label, rename or delete a label

You can sort labels by number of issues or alphabetically. Go to view filter link to see all issues under a label and there is also option to change name or delete the label entirely.


Please note: If you are in global mode, administrative actions (rename, delete etc.) will affect all projects. If you do not want this, use per project label management.

2.2 Merge two or more labels

Merging labels is also possible, albeit using renaming feature. For example, if you have three labels named backend, back-end and Backend and want to keep only the last one i.e Backend, you can rename the first two labels to Backend. This way, those labels will be merged.
