Predefined labels

Hi all,

I am new to the JIRA Atlassian world, and I am trying to configure it for my team. I would like to define a set of labels so that, when an issue is created, only the predefined labels are shown as options. Is it possible to do it with Jira?

That breaks the whole point of the labels field.

If you want to do this, remove the labels field from your project(s) and create a new multi-select custom field to replace it.  Those have predefined lists of options.
