Is there a way to restrict who can assign specific labels?

I want to allow general label creation, however I'd like to restrict specific labels to only be assigned by specific users or groups.

An example would be collecting lists of restaurants. The restaurants would have the labels to describe them, however the only labels that can be applied by the group "Raters" or people in charge of the ratings can assign "label_5_stars",  "label_4_stars", or "label_3_stars" to ensure the people building the lists don't specify a rating when they aren't the ones doing the rating.

Hi @Penn_Wilbert 

This isn't possible. You can either allow it for everybody or for nobody. 

I found a feature for confluence server and cloud for this purpose:

You can watch it and vote for it. But as you see, the request is from 2005...

Hope this helped.

Thanks @Dominic Lagger I've copied my example to the request as well ask submitted my vote and ask. I guess push comes to shove I could try to write a plugin for it, better to make sure the wheel doesn't exist before I invent it!

I found a plugin for restricting labels, but I didn't see anything about permissions. Just to restrict users to set their own labels. 


@Dominic LaggerThis is a start, at least this plugin has the right framework and they list they're willing to update and add features. Thank you!
