CQL Script job - ScriptRunner - Remove Labels

I am looking at options to force remove labels from Confluence pages for archival purposes. I have ScriptRunner for Confluence, and see the CQL script jobs under CQL Escalation scripts. 

Has anyone had success utilizing this method? If so, do you have an example? My goal is to run a CQL: label="noarchive-single" or label="noarchive" on a cron and have the labels removed from those pages. 


If not, how are you force removing labels on a schedule? 


Notes: Confluence Server 6.13.7 / ScriptRunner 5.5.11

Hey Mike, this answer might come a bit late but you can use this example and alter it accordingly :

import com.atlassian.confluence.labels.Label
import com.atlassian.confluence.labels.LabelManager
import com.atlassian.confluence.labels.Namespace
import com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator
import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.PageManager

def pageManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(PageManager)
def labelManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(LabelManager)

def labelName = "test"
log.warn(">>> ${labelName}")

def label = labelManager.getLabel(labelName).getId()

  The script above will delete a label by retrieving the label ID. 

I hope this helps!
