Can I create a filter that shows issues that have linked issues in the current sprint?

I am trying to create a filter that will show all of the "Bug" type issues that exist in the project (regardless of sprint) that have "Stories" in the current sprint in the link field. 



  • I am in Sprint 17
  • I have a story that was originally in Sprint 16, that was not accepted due to a bug, that I am moving to Sprint 17 (The current sprint)
  • I want that aforementioned bug to appear in a filter regardless of what sprint is defined in the bug itself, only the sprint in the linked story.

Thanks in advance!

You cannot do this with the default search capability in JIRA. A plugin like JQL Tricks has method to search linked issues based on a query and that is your best bet!
