Labelomat is confluence plugin used for automatically adding or removing labels to confluence content (namely pages, blogs, comments or attachments) based on statistical data such as number of comments for pages in given space, number of likes of comment, how many times page were edited, how old is given blog post and much more.

How it works

Labelomat consists of two main parts specifying adding or removing labels:

  • Rule
  • Condition

Example Scenario

To best explain how it works let's look at simple use case scenario.

Let's say that you want to add label popularpage to every page in space Product Team with space key PRTE, when the page receives at least 5 likes in last 30 days and at least 5 comments in last 20 days. With Labelomat plugin you will simply create rule and conditions for it and the Labelomat plugin will simply add this label whenever a page meets these condition. Check images below to see how these rules and conditions would look like:

  • Condition saying that page received at least 5 likes that are younger than 30 days

  • Condition saying that page have at least 5 comments that were created in last 20 days

  • Active rule saying Labelomat will add label popularpage to pages of space with space key PRTE based on condition pageLikes5LT30D and pageComment5LT20D

Navigation to Labelomat's configuration

You can find link to Labelomat's configuration in admin section of confluence:

Main Idea

Conditions are based on Confluence Events such as page edition, comments or likes. So each time someone edit a page, make a comment or like a content, and rule with relevant condition is active, labelomat checks whether label should be added or removed. Conditions gives powerful way to choose when label should be added or removed.
