Labels are tied to the repository they are created in. Once a label exists, you can use it on any issue or pull request within that repository. For more information, see "Creating a label."
Anyone with read access to a repository can view and search the repository’s labels. To create, edit, apply, or delete a label, you must have write access to the repository.
GitHub Enterprise Server provides default labels in every new repository. You can use these default labels to help create a standard workflow in a repository:
|Indicates an unexpected problem or unintended behavior|
|Indicates a need for improvements or additions to documentation|
|Indicates similar issues or pull requests|
|Indicates new feature requests|
|Indicates a good issue for first-time contributors|
|Indicates that a maintainer wants help on an issue or pull request|
|Indicates that an issue or pull request is no longer relevant|
|Indicates that an issue or pull request needs more information|
|Indicates that work won't continue on an issue or pull request|
Default labels are included in every new repository when the repository is created, but you can edit or delete the labels later. For more information, see "Deleting a label."
Organization owners can customize the default labels for repositories in their organization. For more information, see "Managing default labels for repositories in your organization."
