Remove a label in a Transition Post Function

I've set up a Condition on several of my workflow transitions that require the presence of a given label so that developers cannot transition issues without giving them a certain label. Now I would like to remove that label after the transition is done. Is that possible?

I've looked at the Post Functions and can't seem to find a way to manipulate the labels of an issue.

Hi, any update on this? It would be a really useful feature to have. Thanks.

Hi @hannah_brooks ,

while there is still no out-of-the-box feature to do so, you might want to have a look at the workflow apps available on the Atlassian Marketplace:

Jira Workflow Toolbox being one of those can manipulate the labels field via its Update issue fields post function ( In order to remove the label myLabel while keeping the remaining labels, you'd have to update the field with the expression

- myLabel

Disclaimer: I'm part of the team behind the aforementioned app.

The scripting add-ons can provide a place to write code if you don't want to write your own add-on to give you a post-function or listener to do it.  Otherwise there's nothing internal to do it.

Did you find a solution to this?

6 years later and same issue here. Anyone found a solution?
