Labels fields with autocomplete

Hello, community

The normal labels fields has the functionality to type any word. If the field was polulated from previous issues, the word can appear. I don't want that. What I want is to have the labels customfield in which I can prepopulate the value and when I type, only the prepopulted words have to be there.

In few words, is there auto completed label custom fields

To get a pre-populated list, ditch "labels" (the whole point of the labels field is that users can enter what they want without a fixed list). Create a multi-select list instead, that has all the functions you need.

But what happens if a select option has composed field like (Name, URL)?

A select list has a list of options. You set the options. Doesn't matter if it's (Name, URL), (Badger, Mushroom, Snake) or whatever.

Actually, I'm really not sure I understand what you mean by a composed field. However, I suspect labels are even less suitable, as they break down into single words, so entering name, url would get you two separate labels.
