Hi @David Perry 

As in, you want to create 2000 labels in Jira so they can be used on a Project?

If yes, a CSV import will read one label per column. So you could...

  • Use a CSV to create one issue (as you need to upload at least one)
  • Set the required parameters (Summary, etc)
  • Create a range of columns, all entitled "Labels"
  • Put one label per column
  • Upload it

...this should do it.


I gave it a go, I managed to upload 1899 labels into one issue. So you'd need at least 2 issues.

This works perfectly thank you! When creating an issue via the platform there is a limit of 55 labels, but when uploading via CSV, that limit doesn't apply. Thank you for your help!
