Automation for Confluence cloud: Send email if page is created with no label

Ben May 17, 2022


is it currently possible to use Automation for Confluence to send an email when a page is created that does not have a label?

I found out that it is possible to send an email when a page is created that has a certain keyword.
It is relatively simple:
When: Page published
If: CQL condition
label = "xyz"
Then: Send email

However, I can't find an expression that describes that there is no label at all. "Label IS empty" does not work.

(Reminder: I'm talking about Automation for Confluence cloud NOT Jira.)


Any ideas?


Kind regards,

this is currently really hard to do. CQL does not allow null or empty as value. 

There's an open request you can for : 

You must use NOT IN LABEL "label-a" AND NOT IN LABEL "label-b" AND NOT IN LABEL "label-c", etc. It's really painfull. 

Hope this help
