How can I find the list of labels being used in a project?

I need to find the list of labels being used in the project. Some suggested to use the gadgets but i cant find the gadgets(maybe they are not enabled) to get the list, can someone suggest a better way.

It is called Labels Gadget. You can add it to your dashboard and filter labels for a project in the settings of the gadget.

Usually Jira does not load all gadgets when you try to add a gadget. there is a button on the adding screen "Load all gadgets". Click it.

this is super cool! Thank you!

Labels Gadget lists all the labels used in the project. How to search labels listed in issuetype = Test only?


@Yunhua Hu   you can always just do a normal search and use a jql like:

issuetype = test and labels is not EMPTY

You can save that filter, use it in a dashboard or just export your results 

*to note - this does not mean that some of the labels are NOT used in other types as well, so be mindful of that*



you could also just do a filter, if you didn't want to build a Dashboard.

Query would be similar to this:

Project = "ProjectName" and labels != EMPTY


You can limit the columns to whatever you want/don't want to see, and voila. Quick and easy, you can export it if you want to csv, etc.

You can get a list of all labels as json file from the REST API, see the answers in this thread:

This might work for Jira Cloud, but I don't think that API exists for Jira Server?

No mention of "labels" anywhere on this page:

There is a hard-code solution - SQL query to database.
