Question re: issue templates

We are doing a proof-of-concept for the Issue Templates plug-in and have a question. Is it possible for labels to be included in template creation?

Hi Kelvin,

You could try editing the template like editing an issue, and adding labels, to see if that results in what you intend. Otherwise please check further in the docs and email support:

Hope this helps.

Hi @Kelvin Tamayo,

Yes, it is possible. We also support labels field in our templates.

How to do it?

1. Create a template in the Template repository project (TEMP by default).

2. Add "labels-textarea" to scope (Tab Scopes in Issue Templates Details panel).

3. Create a new issue using template. Remember to add field Template to the Create issue screen.


In case of any questions, don't hesitate to ask our support team.

Best regards,
