Find Parent Jira issues with closed Story/Task issues

Hi would anyone know how I can use JQL script to find the parent (Epic issues) that has closed  child (Story/Task issues)?

Reason for this is I want to close off the Epic issues when all its children (Stories/Tasks issues) are closed. Once script is working I will subscribe to it to alert me to close the parent (Epic issues)


I have Epic issues that are linked to the Stories and/or Tasks issues via Epic link.

I want to look for:-

If      All the Stories and/or Tasks  related to the Epic (via epic link) are resolved or closed


       return list of the Epic issues 


      do not return any result

End if
