Remove only one tag instead of them all in Automation

I am using Automation for Jira and would like to only remove one specific tag as part of an automation, but it seems like there is only an option to remove all the tags or none of the tags.

Does anyone have experience in working with this?

Hey Nathan,

thanks for your message.

Just checking - by 'tag' - do you mean label?

If so, this should be pretty straightforward to do with Automation for Jira. 

You just need to go into the 'edit issue' action, choose 'label' and then you can add or remove selected labels (as per screenshot).
