Advanced Field Edit - Add multiple labels

Can we add multiple labels through the advanced field edit?


i'm basically looking to do something like this:


        "update": {
                 "labels": [
                         "add": "Label1", "Label2"



It works fine for adding 1 label but I also need to add multiples and can't figure it out.

Hi @Ryan Markle 


You can add multiple labels through advanced fields as follows:

    "update": {
        "labels": [
                "add": "Label1"
                "add": "Label2"





Thanks Eric!  That works.


Any idea how to handle that with an array list?  I have an array of label names I want to add to an issue. Is it possible to iterate over that array and add them?
