To add a label to an attachment:

  1. Go to the page that contains the attachment. Choose Tools > Attachments.
  2. Alternatively, go to the attachments view of the space:
    • Go to the space and choose Space tools > Content Tools from the bottom of the sidebar.
    • Choose Attachments.
  3. You will see a list of attachments, with columns for attachment name and other details. If the attachment already has labels, these will be listed in the Labels column.
  4. Choose the edit icon  beside the list of labels.
  5. Type in a new label. Existing labels are suggested as you type.
  6. Choose Add.

You can also add labels in a list of attachments displayed by the Attachments macro, by choosing the edit icon  beside each label.

  • Note: Personal labels are deprecated. Earlier versions of Confluence recognised a special type of label called a 'personal' label. A personal label starts with 'my:' and is only visible to the user who created it. We are removing personal labels from Confluence, as announced in the Confluence 4.1 Upgrade Notes. The functionality for personal labels is still in Confluence, but we recommend that you stop using them. In a future release, we plan to remove the functionality altogether.
  • If you add a label to a template, that label will be copied to the page when someone adds a page based on that template. See Adding a Template.
