Hi @Anastasia 

Welcome to the Community!

Here you can do this.

  1. Do an advanced search for: labels is not EMPTY
  2. Export ALL results
  3. Remove all columns apart from Labels column
  4. From the labels column, remove all duplicates using this guide:

I hope that helps.

Thanks for your answer, but I need to get list of all labels in Jira, even those that have not been used.

With the limited search results for any JIRA query this does not find even close to all of the labels in play when you have more than 2000 issues

Hi @Anastasia, @Penny Boulet and everyone else stumbling on this,

I know, it's an old question, but for reference: @Monika Rani's answer is the correct one. To work around the result limits, you could do multiple queries by project or some combination of other attributes. 

Also, in Jira there are technically no labels that are not used on at least one issue. However, you might see the a label in the suggestions even that it has been removed from all issues. This happens every so often and typically is due to some in-browser caching.

If you are on Jira Cloud instead of Server, you can use Jira Expressions to list all labels on your instance.

Finally, there's an app for that. In fact, multiple apps are available to manage labels. If you're on Cloud, I'll give my totally biased recommendation and suggest Project Labels. (Disclaimer: I work for Polymetis Apps)

Anyway, hope that helps,
