2913383 - Label color doesn't change when the privacy is changed from Private to Public - Report Center


  • With the new 2005 H1 Label UI, Public labels are coloured Golden and Private Labels are coloured Gray by default
  • While the colour of Public Labels can be set to one among the six available colours (Gold, Orange, Blue, Green, Violet and Red) , Private labels can be of colour Gray only.
  • But if a private label is changed to a public one, it seems to retain the Gray colour 

Note: This article is applicable only to the new Label functionality and UI changes (Reports vs Label) introduced in the b2005 release.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to Report Center  > Manage Labels and create a new Private Label
    Notice that the color is only Gray with no option to change it

  2. Create a new Public Label
    Notice there are 6 available colors and Gray isn't one of them.

  3. Change the Private label created in step1 , to a public label
    If just the mandatory steps are followed, the newly changed label will seem to retain the Gray colour, despite being a public Label
