How to I get a list of Epics that have Issues linked to them?

Hi I am trying to create filtered boards for various components and expecting to show only those epics on the Story board I used the following JQL but it returns all the Epics (rightfully so) and only the issues that have component set to iMedia. What I want is the query to return only the Epics that have issues whose component name is XYZ - so that the board looks neat. I don't want to use any plugins. Is there a way this can be done, if not can you think of any alternate solution?

project = GAN AND (issuetype = Epic OR component = XYZ)

If I understand your requirement correctly - you basically want all the Epics which has issues with component name = XYZ.

I don't think it's out of the box supported by JIRA.

using a plugin (script runner) it's pretty easy.

issueFunction in epicsOf("type=story and component = XYZ") 

The above query gets all epics which have stories with component XYZ as issues in epic.
