Understanding Jira Labels

Before moving ahead, it’s important to understand what labels are. Labels in Jira are tags that you can add to your issues. These tags can be about anything – a department, a feature, or a priority, etc. The good thing about labels is that they can be added or edited inline, without going into the issue’s configuration.

Press Enter, and Jira will show you the issues that have any of the labels you entered.
