Structure with Theme and Epics that are not Closed


I'm trying to create a query to build a structure that returns a Theme at the top level, with all Open child Epics.  

Here's what I have currently
issueFunction in portfolioParentsOf("issuetype = Epic and program = xxx and status != Closed") and issuetype = Theme

This returns all Themes where there is at least one open epic and lists all epics (open and closed)  I understand why that is happening, but I can't figure out the correct query to return only the open children.  

This is what it looks like:

  • Theme 1
    • Epic A
    • Epic B (Closed)
    • Epic C
  • Theme 2
    • Epic A (Closed)
    • Epic B

This is what I want it to look like:

  • Theme 1
    • Epic A
    • Epic C
  • Theme 2
    • Epic B


Thanks in advance for any suggestions.  I tried a few nested queries but saw the same results.

I just found the Filter Generator and that solved it.
