I would like to display a cartographic scale (e.g. 1:10,000) in the print composer.

I can set the scale from map tab. After setting, I can type by myself as Label.

Is it possible to put scale automatically??

Yes, that's possible: Add a scale bar object to the map and change it's type to numeric. That will display the scale.
