It is not currently possible to create labels which include spaces in either JIRA or Confluence as multiple labels are added by typing them separated by spaces. For Example: This is my Label is turned into This, is, my, and label.


To create a 'multi-worded' label, hyphens " - " or underscores " _ " need to be used:

  • This-is-my-Label
  • This_is_my_Label
