can't re-add a label after deleting it


I need to re-add a label that was previously deleted but an error is displayed and the label is not added.


Steps to reproduce in Confluence:

1. Add label

2. Delete the label

3. Attempt to re-add that same label


System returns an error icon and the label is not added.


Any ideas how to get around this?

Hi Mordechai,

I've attempted to replicate this on my instance but I was not able to:

However, this is on Confluence 6.3.4. Can you let me know what version of Confluence you have the problem in, and if you are replicating the issue a different way?

Kind Regards,

Thanks Shannon.

It took a while but we tracked it down to a system problem.

Thank you for letting us know, Mordechai!

If you would like to share the system problem as a separate answer it might help other users if they run into the same issue.
