How do I create a new label in jira

looking to create a new label to be used when we create an issue

2 answers

Just by typing whatever the label needs to be on the labels field should create a new label for you. No need to be and admin or anything like that to do so.

Brilliant, thank you.

Hi, thank you.
And do I remove a label from the drop-down list?
Kind reagards, 


This does not appear to work in advanced roadmaps plans.

In Jira cloud the above doesn't work.  I can type a new label but nothing works to save it.   no save button.  checkmark does nothing.   it loses the value i enter when i move on.   highly frustrating 

correction it does work.   Jira doesn't allow a space in the label. Once i fixed that and clicked check mark it added it.
