The JQL is the search language, it does not update anything. If you are seeking for the way to bulk add labels to issues there are several ways to do this, from using REST API to utilizing one of the app available on Marketplace which provide scripting capabilities.

you can achieve with two steps.


1 - search the stories with empty label belongs one the required epic , example

Epiclink=abc and label is empty

It will get all stories with empty label  belongs to epic abc


2 - Now perform the bulk operation and update the story label.

Thank you. I was able to update now. Can we auto update within JIRA?
