My epics all have labels. I would like to create a filter whereby I can show all child issues and epics that belong to an epic that has a specific label. Such as: for any epics that have label = XYZ, then show the epic AND the children of that epic in my query results.
As you're on Jira Cloud, the correct answer is to get an app that provides JQL extensions you're looking for.
With standard JQL, you can only get a list of issues and export them to Excel for further processing. This works if you want to do a one-off analysis. If your use case is more dynamic than that, look beyond standard Jira.
Standard JQL doesn't easily allow it, but you can quickly find the results using our professional indexing service JQL Search Extensions
You can use this query to find your children of epics whose epic contains "labels = XYZ"
issue in childrenOfEpicsInQuery("labels = XYZ")
Check out the documentation for more examples.
If you have any other questions, please contact our support. We’ll be happy to help you!
unfortunately, "plain" JQL doesn't work particularly well across issue hierarchies, so to the best of my knowledge, you can't do that without some kind of additional tooling.
A few ways forward:

To my second point, your use case would be easy to do with the app that my team is working on, JXL for Jira.
JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing, inline-editing, sorting and filtering by all your issue fields, much like you'd do e.g. in Excel or Google Sheets. It also comes with a number of advanced features, including support for flexible issue hierarchies. This means that you can easily navigate your issues, either as a simple list or across hierarchies, like so:
Once you've narrowed down to the issues you care about, you can work on these directly in JXL, trigger various Jira operations, or export them for further processing.
You may already know that you can trial any Marketplace app for free for 1 month, and depending on the size of your site, it may be free forever - so perhaps try out one or two apps and see which one works best for you.
