JQL query for issues linked to a specific issuetype in the same or another Jira project

Eszter Somossy February 25, 2024


please help me, I want to filter all the epics that are linked with "created by" linktype to issues in "Strategy" issuetype in any of my projects in Jira.

Is it possible with JQL query?

I tried this, but did not work:

issueType = Epic AND issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("issuetype = Strategy", "created by")


Thank you for help.


Kind regards,


Eszter Somossy

Hi @Eszter Somossy 

I’m Charlotte, a support engineer at Appfire and I’m here to help you.

Unfortunately, using vanilla JQL, you’ll not be able to do it dynamically.

In the app where my team works, JQL Search Extensions for Jira, you can use this query to find Epics that are linked to Strategies with “created by” linktype:

issue in linkedIssuesOfQuery("type = Strategy", "created by") AND type = Epic

Please contact our support if you have any other questions about this query.

We’ll be happy to help you! 😉

Hello @Eszter Somossy 

In what way is the filter not working?

Are you getting an error message?

Are you getting fewer or more issues than you expect?

Hello, Trudy,

It said that there is no issueFunction.
