Space Category vs Team Label?

I am writing a user macro to display spaces by team label for a projected upgrade to 3.4.x (got stuck on 2.3.7, long story). However, I see that Confleunce 4.x has a space category function and no sign of team labels. So my question is - do my team labels migrate as categories when I come to migrate eventually?

Hallo Paul

Yes, your team labels will automatically become space categories. The change happened in Confluence 3.5. Here are the release notes ( and the upgrade notes (

When you do the upgrade to Confluence 4, the upgrade task will run and change your team labels to space categories.

I hope this answers the question. :)

Cheers, Sarah

Many thanks - sorry to have not got to those release notes yet, got to get to 3.4 first.

We have just upgraded from 3.x to 4.1 and categories and labels seem to perform the same function - eg, I thought I could use them together in a hierarchy, but instead every label I create also creates a tab in the Space Directory page.

So what's the difference between categories and labels?
