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.

I'm interested in the answer of this as well. I am trying to add a label to a dynamically created page. I followed Florian's suggestion and looked at the Confluence LabelManager class here

Unfortunately, when I add the following import line in my script:

import com.atlassian.confluence.label

It doesn't seem to recognize this. I am running version Confluence Server 6.13.11. How can I tell if this is available?

BTW, I tried this import inside IntelliJ and it was able to find it without a problem. So that confirms that the class exists (obviously).

Hey :)

there you should find all the available classes for your instance.

Form these docs:


Class Label

  • java.lang.Object
    • com.atlassian.core.bean.EntityObject
      • com.atlassian.confluence.labels.Label

But your issue probably comes from your import which is not correct:

// wrong
import com.atlassian.confluence.label

import com.atlassian.confluence.labels.Label



Hope that can help you :)
