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?
Yes, your team labels will automatically become space categories. The change happened in Confluence 3.5. Here are the release notes (http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence+3.5+Release+Notes#Confluence35ReleaseNotes-CategoriesaNewWayofOrganisingSpaces) and the upgrade notes (http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence+3.5+Upgrade+Notes#Confluence35UpgradeNotes-TeamLabelsNowCalledSpaceCategoriesMayNeedTidyingUp).
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. :)
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?
