JQL Query for Story list with Feature Labels

Is there a way I can build a JIRA JQL query to show a list of stories connected to features with a specific label? My features are in a different project used by our company and the stories all sit in multiple other projects. 

Feature level Project =  "MM1PP"

label = x

Story projects like IOP1, IOP2 etc

Hi Nicole,

We use the following which is a life saver: plugin: which you will have to purchase.



1. Create a new filter that contains all features with label "x" and save it as Filter ABC. e.g

project = MM1PP and and label = "x"

2. Then you create a new filter: issuetype in (story) and issue in  linksHierarchyFilter("Filter ABC")

3. All stories under feature that have label x will display.

Hello Nicole,

Returning linked issues via JQL is not supported out of the box. However, you can do so by using a plugin with JQL support such as Power Scripts. 

For more information on doing this with Power Scripts, please see this documentation.

Your script would look something like:

string [] result;
string [] jql = "key in hasLinks('" + argv[0] + "')";
string [] issues = selectIssues(jql);

for (string issue in issues) {
    string [] linkedIssues = linkedIssues(issue);
    for (string linkedIssue in linkedIssues) {
        if (linkedIssue.issueType == "Story") {
            result += linkedIssue;

return result;

The search would look something like the following:

key in silJQLList("scratch.sil", "project = EX AND labels = label1")

Full disclosure, I am a support engineer for Anova Apps, an Appfire Company.
