labels and tags as mandatory?


Is it possible to configure Confluence on a server so that labels and or tags, would be mandatory in the creation of a page ? 

Follow on question, is it possible to make any other field mandatory, for the creation of a page? 


Many thanks

Hi @Colm Maguire 

Not to my knowledge. Confluence doesn’t have such constraints or features.

You could consider trying something like Comala Document Manager where as part of the workflow, a label or tag is required.

For every question it seems the solution is to buy an add on. :(

Hi @Colm Maguire ,

We are not suggesting you buy an add-on. As I mentioned this is not a feature present in Confluence and this is also highlighted by @Pramodh M in his reply below.

My suggestion to you is from experience of what the add-on is capable of as a workaround. 

You can also raise a feature request ticket at (if none exists yet) for a similar feature or consider writing something custom yourself as suggested below.

Hi @Colm Maguire 

Have not found the best solution yet in community, 

Surely Automation may one day solve this problem or Scriptrunner add-on

For now you could use the template to add labels automatically when user creates the page 

Based on the template you can add respective labels

Here's a ref from devlopment community for more info on making lables mandatory
