Create a label using Butler


I'm trying to find out if I can have a Butler workflow that creates a new label on a board?

If needed, I can create a card to attach it to first, but I can only find ways to add already existing labels to cards.. am I just not looking in the right place, or is this a missing feature?

What I want to do, is when adding label L to card C in board B1, create a label named C in board B2.

@mortenlj you can't trigger on adding a label that doesn't already exist, but you can edit the label as you add it:

@mortenlj created an add-on to add new or existing label to a card with an option to "match_color". This can be ran via a Butler add-on which I developed using Butler HTTP Request. This means that you can embed with other commands. The input is 

{"card_id" : "{cardidlong}", "label_name" : "Create", "label_color" : "purple", "match_color" : "No"}
