What is JQL for pulling together specific epics?

I have specific Epics that I want to create a filter with, but none of the basic search features allow me to combine multiple epics together. What would the advanced (JQL) query be?

Hi Lauren,

The following query retrieves the specified epics:

key in (EPIC-1, EPIC-2, EPIC-3)

This other one gets the issues that belong to any of the specified epics:

"Epic Link" in (EPIC-1, EPIC-2, EPIC-3)

As your Jira instance is on the Cloud, you may get the list of epics, plus issues within any of those epics, as well as their sub-tasks with a simple query:

parentEpic in (EPIC-1, EPIC-2, EPIC-3)

Hope it helps.

For combine multiple epics

"Epic Link" = XXX-001 or "Epic Link" = XXX-002


Thanks for the response but this seems to only pull one epic at a time. I need to list multiple epics. If I add parenthesis and commas (i.e. "Epic link= (XXX-0001, XXX-0002)), I'm still not able to pull the multiple specific epics that I need to list.
