First a disclaimer, that I do not work for Atlassian or any marketplace vendors. I am just another Jira user offering some ideas.
If I understand what you are asking, I believe this is possible using saved filters to contain the relevant epics, such as for your example of ProjectXY.
First though, I recommend you pause to consider what do you mean by "indicate the status of ProjectXY". Perhaps draft what what reporting would look like, and what questions your stakeholders want to answer.
Then try creating a Jira dashboard with the saved filter for ProjectXY, and build your reporting. If the built-in gadgets cannot show what you want, investigate the Atlassian Marketplace for some addon gadgets to see what might help: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/
Another possible route is using Jira Product Discovery, which is made for taking ideas from concept to delivery, road mapping the progress rolled up from the delivery team projects. Please look here to learn more about that: https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/product-discovery
my first reaction is that you may want to track your orders as issues - probably of a new issue type that you can create, like Order - and then link the relevant epics to these issues, so that an order becomes a parent issue to the epics.
Jira does allow additional issue hierarchy levels above epic as part of Jira Software Premium. You can then view the orders in Advanced Roadmaps, which also aggregates progress up the issue hierarchy.
If you don't want to move to Jira Software Premium, you can still establish issue links between the epics and your order issues, however Jira doesn't have a good, built-in way of displaying and aggregating across issue-link-based hierarchies. You'll need an app from the Atlassian Marketplace for that; I'll provide more information below.
Alternatively, you could simply track the order via some issue field (e.g., a custom field, or even just the standard labels field), and set the respective order value on the epics. Again, Jira doesn't have a good, built-in way of displaying and aggregating across such issue groups, but again, the Marketplace can help with this.
Hope this helps,
... and just to expand on the Atlassian Marketplace. As said above, there are multiple apps available that can help with the above. I can only speak for the app that my team and I are working on - JXL for Jira - but here, your use case would be trivial to solve, like so:
For context, JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing, inline-editing, sorting, and filtering by all your issue fields, much like you’d do in e.g. Excel or Google Sheets. It also comes with a number of advanced features, including support for configurable issue hierarchies (based on Jira's built-in issue hierarchy and/or issue links) as well as sum-ups. With these, you can build a report like the one above in just a couple of clicks.
If you prefer to model your orders via issue fields on the epics (e.g., labels), you can do that too, using JXL's issue grouping capabilities.
As said above, there may be other apps that can help with this, too. You may already know that you can trial any app for free for 1 month, and depending on the size of your size, it may be free forever. So if an app is an option for your, perhaps try a few and see which works best for you.
