Query for Epics that have a specific assignee

I'm trying to create a board where the backlog page can show a list of all the epics that have any tickets assigned to a specific engineer. I can't come up with a search query to accomplish this.

Right now I have:

parentEpic in (EP-3137, EP-484) OR assignee = 5df942c59737700cb64d41f4

This picks up all the tickets in those epics, and all the tickets assigned to this person, regardless of what epic they're in. But I don't want to have to update my search every time any team creates a new epic, or to assign the epic ticket itself to this person.

Ideas on how I could improve my query?

If you indeed want just a list of Epics for a certain Assignee then the JQL you out would be like this

type = epic and assignee = xxxx


You might consider this as a quick filter

Meg, if you want a list of Epics assigned to a assignee , then what Jack mentioned above should work for you 

issuetype = Epic AND assignee = abc


But if you are looking for all the issues that are assigned to you person, immaterial of which Epics they are in , use something like this - 

issuetype in (Story, Task) AND assignee = abc

If you want Epics in the list, you can add 'Epic Link' from the Columns dropdown

Thanks @Jack & @Libu B

None of these are quite what I'm looking for. 

I want the list of epics which have ANY ticket in them assigned to a person. The epic itself will not be assigned to that person .

Sorry I misunderstood your query earlier.

To me it looks like it would need an external plugin like ScriptRunner to write such a query.

Ah, ok. thank you!
