I have a large number of test cases in Jira that are tagged with various labels. Many of the labels are redundant, as they are either the same word misspelled (Acceptance, Acceptence, Accepence, Aceptance, Aceptence) or a variation on another label (collector, collectors, datacollectors, data_collector). I'd like to restrict the ability to create new labels to a specific user or set of users, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do it.
So far the best solution I've come up with is to create a set of "correct" labels and hope that people will use the auto-suggested label. This has not proved successful. Today I found that a user has been labeling test cases with the IP of the server used for testing (as opposed to the "Test Environment" field). Just to add to the fun, she used commas instead of decimal points at random: "172.17,10,1", "172,17.10,1", etc.
Does anyone have any ideas for imposing order on the situation?
Labels are something which is usually left to the discretion of the users to decide the right content. But if you need to restrict, may be just you a Multi Select custom field and call it Labels.
I have the same issue with label-type fields and am looking for a possibility of restricting it to the project role. So far no idea how.
Any ideas? Thank you for the help!
I have done the 2 steps you have described on Feb 03 '13.
But now I have the problem to write the correct script to show the contents of the label field on a transition. So that the jira-users can choose several items of the list and add to an issue.
How do I have to write that script?
@Renjith Pillai, if you're still on here, I'm not sure I understand your answer here or below. Do you know if Atlassian has come up with any way to allow administrators to limit the number and/or names of labels within an enterprise's Confluence pages?
