Just managed to get it working!

issueBuilder.setFieldValue("labels",Arrays.asList("label1", "label2"));

The suggestion to use "editmeta" is wrong (or, at least, has become wrong by late 2018).  A correct example using PUT to the issue endpoint can be found here. 

Hi,

You can use the 'editmeta' URL for doing that. It requires the same argumentas as the 'issue' URL. We have some examples of editing issues via REST:

- https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+REST+API+Example+-+Edit+issues

Then, you can use a sniplet like this:

{
    "update": {
    "fields": {
        "labels": [
            "bugfix",
            "blitz_test"  ],
              }
        }
}

Best regards,
Lucas Timm

And how i use this with the Java Rest API?

That's my way to create a ticket.

final IssueInputBuilder issueInputBuilder = new IssueInputBuilder(ticket.getProject(), issueTypeID, summary)
			.setDescription(ticket.getDescription())
			.setAssigneeName(ticket.getAssignee())
			.setPriorityId(priorityID);
final BasicIssue basicCreatedIssue = issueClient.createIssue(issueInputBuilder.build(), pm);

check this issu, vote up to implement this feature

https://ecosystem.atlassian.net/browse/JRJC-109

Is there a way to achieve this using issueBuilder.setFieldValue? I have tried variations on

issueBuilder.setFieldValue("labels", labelArray);

where the labelArray parameter is a String array, an array list, or similar but so far have not succeeded...
