Automatic exchange of labels within a Macro Edited

Hi there,

when merging similar labels or replacing labels with the Label Manager does this also change automatically in the query in the "Content by Label" Macro?

Thanks in advance and best regards,

Amelie Ambos

Hi @Amelie Ambos , 

the content by label dynamically gets its content from the labels you add to the macro. 

You can't remove, change or manage labels directly. Labels just exist once they are added to a page and disappear if they are no longer on any page (including pages in the space trash). 

So if you want to replace one label with another, you will need to add the new label to your macro. 

Hope this helps!

Hi @Tessa Tuteleers ,

thank you for your reply.

Sorry, I think I did not formulate my question clearly enough. With the Add On "Label Manager for Confluence" it is possible to manage labels directly. I wonder if e.g. when changing label names in the Label Manager, this will also change automatically in the "Content by Label" macro?

Otherwise you are right. 

Best regards,

Amelie Ambos

@Amelie Ambos , 

this app basically replaces the labels you want with another (new or existing), but not change the existing label into another one. 

The query in your Content by Label macro will still query your old label and since your pages don't have that one anymore, the pages will disappear. 

Hope this doesn't cause too much trouble for you..


Oh okay that helps me a lot to make a decision. Thank you @Tessa Tuteleers !
