JQL Question About Sub-Task Searches


I am trying to query all open sub-tasks linked to stories, and then these stories that are linked to a single epic. 

I'm trying to do the below query but it doesn't return anything as the sub-tasks don't have a place to put the epic link. 

project = X and type = sub-task and "epic link" = (X-123)


How do I get the sub-tasks associated to this epic pulling? Or is there perhaps a way to nest / embed a query within a query? 


Thank you,

If you have Adaptivist Scriptrunner installed, it would be like this

issueFunction in subtasksOf("\"Epic link\" = X-123") 

This is perfect - thank you!
