Can advanced search add another field "Lables"

Can advanced search add another field "Lables"? Because sometimes I want to filster the specified issues with specified labels.

Hi zhwang,

What version of JIRA are you using?

This works for me

Example:

project = "ABC" and labels = Database

Example:

project = "ABC" and ( labels = Database or labels = Role )

Hello,

I am using EE Jira 4.3, I just tried lables and it works, thanks a lot.

Btw, why there is no "label" field in link: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA052/Advanced+Searching#AdvancedSearching-FieldsReference?

Label actually comes from a plugin (while that plugin is bundled within). So I guess that doc may not refer it.

Indeed - labels is a *custom field type*, not a system field, so it's not documented under the system fields.

You can search using Labels. And if you need to have another custom field itself of type Label, you can create that too
