Adding Labels at the text level

Hello! I am trying to create a page where users can sort terms by their respective labels. My partner and I were playing around with labels and it looks like they can only be added at the page level.

Is it possible to add multiple labels to a page at the text level?

Hi Audrey,

I think that you're looking for this feature:

If so, please vote and comment on it with your usage case to help us consider it for future releases.

Otherwise, you could try to use API or a CLI add-on such as Bob Swift CLI or Scriptrunner in order to do this. Have a look at these past threads:



I believe Audrey was looking for a way to input labels *within* the body of the page - not merely within the label macro section.

For example, Audrey could be typing in the body of the confluence page and call out the labels "Key1" and "Key2" within the text they are writing, like:


"In Table A, there lives Key1 and Key2."


This would be an easier and more intuitive way of adding labels to a page. You don't have to think about adding these terms separately to the labels macro. Nor would you need to remember to update the label section whenever you change the content of your page. Labels would be part of the very content of your page.


If you're building a complex web of confluence pages, breaking out of a simple parent-child structure, allowing labels to be called out in the text itself is vital. Doing so allows the relationships between pages, based on labels, to be built and maintained automatically.

To maintain those relationships without this, you would have to closely monitor and maintain the separate labels section with relevant terms, which few users have the time and motivation to do. If there are a lot of labels to keep track of, it becomes completely infeasible.


I'm looking for this very feature right now!
