Difference between components and labels?

Dear JIRA users,
As a new user of JIRA, I wish to know what the difference between component and label is? When to use which one?  
Thank you in advance.

Hello Xheneta,

 

By the definition of component:

  • Components are sub-sections of a project. They are used to group issues within a project into smaller parts.

And label: 

  • Labeling allows you to categorize an issue(s) in a more informal way than assigning it to a version or  component. You can then search for issues that have been given a particular label.

There are some differences on what can be achieved on each one of these, and are further explained here:

 

Regards,

Rodrigo
