Change labels with Groovy script


I want to run a groovy script when a button is clicked which changes the label.

We have three labels for page classification.

- Internal

- Confidential

- Public


I don't want that users need to change them manually. With Scriptrunner for Confluence I was easily able to create buttons in the action menu.

But I can't find an example script for Confluence.

The script should:

- Remove the existing classification label

- Add the new label

- Not change other existing labels


I found something similiar for Jira.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.label.LabelManager

def user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser()

LabelManager labelManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(LabelManager)
def labels = labelManager.getLabels({it.getLabel()}
labels -= 'labelToBeRemoved'

By adding labels +='label' I believe I could add the new label


Can someone help? :)

Hey Magnus,

we needed to add Labels to an existing page. And used this code:

import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.Page
import com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator
import com.atlassian.confluence.labels.Label
import com.atlassian.confluence.labels.LabelManager

Page addLabelsToPage(List<Label> labels, Page page) {
labels.each { Label label ->

Looks like there is a LabelManager in Confluence too ;)

Hope that will help you with your Problem.
