I still have labels which are not assigned present in the dropdown list. I would like to clean all of them... (etiquettes = labels in french)

However, i dont see labels not assigned in the filter dropdown in the kanban view for example.

Will be possible to clean labels manually in a next version ?

So the article shared above doesn’t work? I have not attempted associated with NG so unsure if there is something unique but would expect it to work. 

Unfortunately no. 

According to the article, an unused or unassigned label should remove itself. And this is not happening in the next gen version it seems..

I would suggest putting in a request with support and/or submit feedback.

@david de vicente  - Did you ever get a resolution to this?

We are also curious for the correct solution on this. Labels that are not used, or are not assigned to a ticket (any more) should not be suggested to the user. This can avoid errors.

Thanks for a solution for this bug.
