Would like a way to view pages which *don't* have a label

We're starting to use Labels in a big way. We'd like to be able to go back through existing pages and find pages which *lack* labels.

Any way to do this? I tried displaying labels which match -* but * is not a valid label.

I can think of two possible ways to do this:

1) Content by label, specifying all your labels with a "-".

2) Not easy, but better: If you have the beanshell macro, you can write Java in a user macro (or just on a page). You could then get a list of all pages, and go through them to find any without labels. I'm only giving you an outline of this because though I think I could write it, it would take me a while to track down all the pieces.

I'll have to try the beanshell macro idea. Thanks for that!

I wrote the following SQL just now and it gives a list of all pages which do not have a label.

SELECT CONTENTID,TITLE FROM content WHERE (CONTENTID NOT IN (SELECT CONTENTID FROM CONTENT_LABEL) and contenttype="page" and prevver IS NULL);

With this list, we can either lookup each page by name or navigate directly by manipulating the following URL using the contetID (where XXXXX is the contentID)

http://<confluence URL>/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=XXXXXX

Cheers,
Andrew
