Logistic Regression does not support numerical label?

I'm getting a Insufficient Capability message that says that numeric label not supported when I used the Logistic Regression operator.  Any idea why?  Thanks

    LogisticRegression is not supporting other labels than binominal by definition of the algorithm. Are you sure you do not want to use a GLM?

    Thanks so much. I was comparing to scikit learn's which log regression which can work with numeric labels.  Also, i was looking earlier at rapidminer's online documentation which seems to be outdated / silent on this. The documentation within the software is correct though. Thanks again.
