Dynamic filter


I would like to create a dynamic filter to get Stories linked to specific Epics. 

In my system, my Epics are categorized by a custom field called "Objective".

I want to get all Stories linked to Epics in which Objective = "Objective A". And of course if I create a new Epic with that Objective, results of my filter are updated. 

I already looked at something with

"Epic Link" in...

issue in linkedIssues()....

but no way to put somewhere my other condition about the Objective. Thank you for your help. 

FYI, I have a Cloud version and not sure I can buy Scriptrunner plugin for my company.

That's not doable without the help of a plugin.

On Cloud, you also count with the function parentEpic() which might be useful in some cases, but it doesn't resolve your needs here.

With ScriptRunner, the filter would be:

issueFunction in issuesInEpics("Objective = 'Objective A'")

Hope it helps.

Thank you Ignacio, I was sure I needed a plugin. I'll try to convince my hierarchy!
