How to group Confluence labels by category or types?

Usually we categorize spaces and pages in Confluence by labels, but my question is if it's possible to categorize the labels, tie them together somehow.


I mean is there any solution to group the labels by type? Example: A, B and C are labels of the letters type, while 1, 2 and 3 are labels of the number type.


I know there are metadata plugins that would do that, but metadata plugin fields and values not always have the same usability as native Confluence labels.


If that's not possible, the solution would be to have metadata plugins that translate metadata fields and values to labels somehow? Maybe automation rule with webhooks?


E.g.: App field "Letters" is marked with value A, that triggers labelling the page with label "LetterA".


It would be like having attributes to labels. Better Labels for Confluence allows to add a description to labels, but that's all. Would like to hear from the community if there are any insights for this. Thanks in advance

A common solution to this "shared namespace" problem is to come up with some naming standards. Using a prefix is a common approach. With your example:

  • letter-a
  • letter-b
  • letter-c
  • number-1
  • number-2
  • number-3

I'm fuzzy on whether CQL can wildcard label names. If not, then I'm not sure this will help you at all.

Confluence add-on/plug-in apps are probably a good way to go. Most allow you to try them for a while for free (but I would do it in a sandbox, since sometimes installation causes "leftovers" in your database that are not easily cleaned up).

Thanks @Mykenna Cepek I'm experimenting several plugins to see if any of them give me more flexibility to handle label management the way we need.

And also figuring out how to develop a system label just like the one you suggested.

It's not the ideal world, but it's going on with what we got on hands at the moment. Cheers
