Need help evaluating Labels column in Formula

I'm trying to create a Structure Formula Column to looks at the Value of the Labels column in an IF statement:

IF(Labels = "KLRisk"; "AML")

no rows in the Formula Column return AML

I've tried no quotes and single quotes around KLRisk with same result.

I;m sure there is something special about Labels column but I can;t find any documentation.

Clip shows my formula is valid but you can also see the Labels column does contain rows with the value I am looking for but is returning nothing in Formula Column?

Hello Kevin,

The used formula will only work for issues that have one label - KLRisk - and nothing else. If there are several Labels and you want to mark issues that contain a specific one, you need to use the match() function:


I hope this helps. Please feel free to contact us directly at if you need further assistance.

@Stepan KholodovHow would you match an exact label name? Say I had two labels called 'mylabel' and 'orig_mylabel'. If I just 'match(labels,"/mylabel/")' then it would match whichever one of those came first (alphabetically, I guess?). How could I tell it "only match exactly the label named 'mylabel'"?


Hello David,

Apologies for the late answer. If you want the Formula to match only a specific label, you should state it so in the brackets - if(match(labels,"mylabel") - but please note that this formula works only if there is a single Labels value, it won't work for issues with multiple values.

Please feel free to reach out to us at if you need more help with the Formula.

Best regards,
