Create JQL nested issue query on certain link types

I have created and EPIC as "FirstEPIC" with Release =May 2017. Now, i would like to pull all the issues created under FirstEPIC with the help of JQL in JIRA.

Note: Issues are linked with EPIC LINK

Please help me to provide solution for the above

Your JQL should just read:

"Epic Link" = "FirstEPIC" when you are typing it should list all the names. 

Alternatively if you plan to also want a second epic or third:

"Epic Link" in ("FirstEPIC") so when you have a "secondEPIC" it would read: "Epic Link" in ("FirstEPIC", "SecondEPIC")

you can read more on advance searching: when their site comes back online
