"Epic Link" in ('') expects issue keys, e.g. "Epic Link" in ('KEY-2', 'KEY-5')


Filters do not return issue keys so this will never work in JQL. You would need more "sophisticated" functions such as 'issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf('project= EPICPROJ', 'is Epic of')'


Such functions are specifically tailored to find you linked issues of an Epic based on a "subquery". (Above example is from ScriptRunner plugin out of box JQL function).

Consider using the ParentEpic JQL function if you have a specific list of epics....

parentEpic = test-40
