Add a label to multiple pages - how?

Peoples,

I want to add a label to about 40 or so pages, but I don't want to do it manually, i.e. one at a time.

Is there anyway of doing this without doing it manually? I don't have access to the back end, so that sort of thing isn't an option.

We're using 5.4.3 download.

Cheers.

Thanks, but I doubt we'll be investing in the plugin and I know almost nothing about REST APIs, so that won't be happening either.

I guess it's a matter of doing it manually then...

Cheers.

The CLI is a DOS based program ... sparate from the plugin. Prior to v3 it is free to use. Here is link to the latest free version ... which does has the addLabel method.

Hello @mick davidson! We have recently made a free plug in Power Scripts for Confluence which you can download from the Marketplace to help automate Confluence administration, one of the features is bulk labelling. Here's a short video on how to do it https://youtu.be/nM0a8JM2T2E?list=PLKTAla3ZrW8mMmYvgOVf3UPXU8V4nc-xj 

Hope this helps!

Michele,

thank you for your answer - I'm surprised you had the motivation after all these years! :) I've moved on now, so the problem is no longer mine. :)

Cheers.

haha no worries Mick thanks for the reply! Always nice when it's someone else's problem :P 

Hi,

You could do it with Label Manager for Confluence plug in. https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.kostebekteknoloji.plugins.confluence.confluence-label-manager
You could search for similar labels in a space and then merge them into one standard label.
You could also do bulk operations like appending , adding and removing labels.
Documentation is here: http://www.confluence.kostebekteknoloji.com/display/PLUG/Label+Manager+for+Confluence
Regards,

Burcu,

thanks for the tip. I should have looked in the market place before asking the question, so I apologise for not doing that first. :)

Cheers.
