JIRA Query (JQL) to filter those issues within a certain set of EPICs

I am currently editing the Quick Filters of my Agile project in JIRA. And I need one where I see all the issues from a given set of epics. I am using something like

"Epic Link" in (ABC-1, ABC-18)

where ABC-1, ABC-18 are my epics. The problem with this is that I need to update the query everytime I add a new epic. Instead, I am thinking if there is a way of getting the list of epics that I care about via another search and merging the two into another query.

So for instance I have all the EPICs that I am interested (1, 18) with components set to "XYZ". So I want to do something like

"Epic Link" in ([Get list of EPICs with component XYZ])

How do i do this?

You can do it with ScriptRunner's JQL functions, in your case:

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("component = XYZ", "is Epic of")

docs: https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/wiki/display/GRV/Scripted+JQL+Functions#ScriptedJQLFunctions-MoreComplexExamples

I see the following. "Field 'issuefunction' does not exist or you do not have permission to view it." What would I need to do?

Did you install the ScriptRunner plugin from marketplace? This plugin provides those functions.
