Users cannot tell who added a given label.

However, Stephen Deutsch offered a promising macro you may get your administrator to install.

Hi Scott,

If you wish to view who added a specific label, to a specific issue, you can see that in the issue history tab.

Regards,

Konstantin

He is asking about Confluence. Who added what label doesn't show up in page history. Adding a label does not cause the page to increment revision (at last as until 5.9.7). I think your only option is the user macro @Stephen Deutsch provided below.

Quite right Bill Bailey. I've concluded that the end-user simply cannot sad.

As is far too often the case, the Atlassian/Confluence answer is install some plugin that the average user simply has little hope of accomplishing. Broken by design :-/

Here's a short user macro to be able to tell who added the labels (you should set it to be viewable only by system administrators so it doesn't confuse regular users):

## @noparams
#foreach ( $labelling in $content.getLabellings() )
  <p> $labelling.label.name added by $labelling.owningUser.name on $labelling.lastModificationDate </p>
#end

Thanks Stephen. While I appreciate that, we simply aren't interested in maintaining a bunch of patch-work band aids (plugins, macros, etc.).

For now our answer is that users cannot tell who added a given label.
