convertToSingleSelect behaviour - label problem


I use behaviour and REST endpoint. Similar to

My REST returns list in format:

items: [{value: "xyz", label: "abc", html: "123"}]

html - represents what the user see in dropdown

value - represents value to save in field

label - I think it is string presented to user when some element is chosen. But is not working.

What is the destination of the label field? How to show user something different to value?

The way I've used this, label and html are functionally equivalent.

html allows you to provide the label with some formatting (to highlight the matching text for example).

After the selection is complete, the label is what you see in the field.

Note that in other screens (view screen, issue navigator) the "value" is all you can display and "value" is also used in indexing and searching. I would not attempt to use some internal ID for this. 

In most cases, you will likely want "value" and "label" to be the same.
