      Atlassian Update – 1 June 2018

      Hi Everyone,

      I’m glad to announce that labels in Jira are case-insensitive.

      You can still create labels with different cases, for example ‘player’ and ‘Player’, but if you search for any of them, the results will contain issues from both these labels, so that nothing gets lost.

      Apart from that, when creating or editing a label in an issue (or searching for one), the auto-complete will suggest all matching labels, regardless of their case, so you don’t create any more duplicates.

      We believe this solution will make working with labels more effective, and make a proper use of your existing labels and any duplicates you might have created by mistake.

      Kind regards,
      Katarzyna Derenda
      Product manager, Jira Server

      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Server. Using JIRA Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Problem Definition

      When applying a label, JIRA will not find existing labels that have a different case:

      Basic search has the same behavior:


      An advanced search, using JQL, will find all labels and is case insensitive.

      labels="it_maintenance"

      returns all results.

      Suggested Solution

      Labels should be case insensitive. That is, if an issue already has a label Australia then it shouldn't allow a second label AUSTRALIA

      There isn't any use to be able to label an issue as Australia, australia and AUSTRALIA because searching for the word Australia in any case will return the issue.
