How to clear the only one value from Label field while moving to other status

Hi Team,

 We have request from user to clear the Label field value, not all values, we need to clear one specific value.

 Project ticket moves from Design IP to DOR CHECK by a member of Analytics Implementation Solution Strategists, the "TRACK" label field value should be removed automatically, and should not clear the whole field values, we have multiple label field values.

We are jira server 8.13.3, and we have JMWE, JSU, Script runner addons.

Could you please suggest on this ?

Hi @Lakshmi S ,

actually, JMWE can also do this. You can add a Set Field Value post-function with the following configuration:

  • Field: Labels
  • Value type: Groovy Expression
  • Value:
issue.get("labels")?.findAll{it.label != "TRACK"}

Hi @David Fischer _Appfire_ , Thank you so much for your quick response.  Its working.


Will this option clear any labels of linked issues?  We would like to clear a label when workflow transitions from Fixed to Ready for Test but only if label value = blah and like the issue above if the label has more than 1 value, we don't want it to clear other values. 

The other dilemma is that we don't want to clear label values for any sub tasks linked to that specific issue.

Of the three apps you have, only Scriptrunner can do this.

You can write a script that:

  • Reads the current label field (which gets you a "collection" of all the labels in use)
  • Iterates over the collection and either
    • Copies everything you want to keep to a new collection
    • Removes the label(s) you do not want from the collection
  • Writes the new/updated collection back to the label field should have most of the code for writing, and suggest how you go about reading too.
