Confluence- get page id from 'LabelAddEvent' - event listeners

I use 'Label Add Event', and I need to get the page id.

How can I do it in 'event listeners'?


I have Confluence version 6.13.8

Hi Daniel! 

You can get the Id of the page the label is being added to by first getting the Labellable object from the Label event and then casting it as a Page. The page Id can then be retrieved from with the getContentId() method. 

I've added a code snippet below that shows this in action!

import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.Page

def page = event.getLabelled() as Page

log.warn page.getContentId()

I hope this helps!  


Hi, Thank you @Lee Wonnacott _Adaptavist_ 

I got this error:


Hi Daniel, 

As you're listening for multiple events you will need to cast the provided event to the particular event you wish to take action on. 

So, in this case, you will need to do the following:

import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.Page

def labelEvent = event as LabelAddEvent

def page = labelEvent.getLabelled() as Page

log.warn page.getContentId()

I'd also recommend separating the events you are listening for into individual listeners as this will make them simpler to implement and maintain your code. 


Thank you, It worked and I caugth the event and the page id!

Bug now I am handeling with a different problem with this script:
