How to display all child issues of an epic using the JIRA filter in confluence

I am trying to use the JIRA filter macro in confluence to create a list of all the child issues of a specific epic.  

If I just use key = [epicname] I only see the epic itself, and none of the child issues.

I am sure this is really simple but I can't find anything in the documentation.

Thanks in advance!

Thank you, that works! 

I also used a filter in JIRA and then copied the URL into the filter box in the confluence JIRA macro:

"Epic Link" = project-1234

this also worked,.

Using the Jira Issue/Filter Macro, you can use JQL, something like this:

parentEpic = "ISSUE_KEY"

Where ISSUE_KEY is the key of the Epic.

See below screenshot.

Three is no simple soluition. Maybe using tjhe query language, but that is work around, and difficult to learn for non programmers.
