Add label to Confluence template



I'm trying to add labels to our a template, so that all pages created from this template has this label.

On the Adding a Template documentation, under "Using the template editor" image there is a label-button where you can add labels.

This however doesn't appear at our site, where we are running Confluence version 5.9.11. Is this removed in the newer version, or where can I find it?



Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

You can find the label symbol at the top of the page in the editor, positioned next to the page tree. You can click on this symbol to add labels to the template you're working on.

See the label symbol next to "Confluence Docs / Templates"


Here is the latest documentation that talks about making templates, for cloud:

Here is the documentation for the latest server version:


I hope this helps!


Thank you!


Didn't notice I was reading the old documentation.

I am using version 6.3 above, you can add your default label using the lable add icon next to the template name.

Step 1: Edit the template

Step 2: Click lable icon next to the page name top-left coner.
