JS Button to delete label and add label



I have pages created with label "ESP". At some point I will want to archive the page. To do this I want to remove "ESP" and add "Archived". 


Below is code that allows a new label to be added OK through my testing, but the removal does not work.


<!DOCTYPE html> 

<button onclick="runScript()">Archive Project</button>
<p><div id="result"></div></p>

<script type="text/javascript">
function runScript() {

var archived = "archivedtest";
AJS.Labels.addLabel(archived, AJS.params.pageId, AJS.params.contentType);

var current = "esp";
var labels = $(".aui-label-split-main");  
  if( labels[i] == esp ) {
        AJS.Labels.removeLabel( $(labels[i]), AJS.params.pageId, AJS.params.contentType);




Please can someone advise on what is wrong with the code and how I can remove "ESP" label?

@JONATHAN RUSSELL welcome to the Atlassian community 

If you are truely archiving the page I would recommend leaving the labels.  The page will be the archive section that most will not be able to access.  You may also want those labels if you restore it.  You might consider only adding a label if you want it but I would think you would want to retain the old labels for true archival purposes.
