How to edit labels

I am trying to figure out how to edit a label's name. Then I found this topic:

That was in 2016. Still now, there is no way to edit a label?

I'm really shocked that JIRA doesn't currently have the functionality to manage labels, this really needs to be added!

  This is still the only delivered solution for managing labels.  There are apps that allow you to manage and update labels. Label Manager is one that would allow you to edit the label.  

@Brant Schroeder Product team should give attention to this. It's hard to believe that we need to install an app to change the name of a label. Atlassian should have a tag manager, to enable users to change label names and even merge labels. Very strange that years have passed and we can't do that until know :/
