Bulk remove a particular label while leaving other labels?

Hi,

This is similar to [1], but the accepted answer to that question appears to remove *all* labels rather than just a particular one.

So if I have some issues which in general have multiple labels, and I want to select a subset of issues and remove a particular label while leaving any other existing labels, is there a way to do that?

Thanks.

removeLabels from JIRA Command Line Interface can be used to remove one or more labels from an issue. Combine that with runFromIssueList to run the removal from all issues matching your search criteria

we're on server 7.9.2 and there is an option under bulk to 'Find and remove these' which then let's you enter the label(s) you want to remove.  It only removes those ones.
