Get all Issues without linked issue

Is it possible to get a list with all issues without a linked issue inside? 

Im using a separate project for all my software-requirments and ideas. Each issue in this project produces additional EPICs inside my other softwareprojects, so each idea causes an related epic.

Now i want to make sure, that every incoming idea has a related EPIC.

Thanks, Nils

If by *linked issue* you mean no related Epic then you can use the JQL

project = X and "Epic Link" is empty

 Here project X can be your project having ideas

Thanks Tarun for your quick answer. In my case I'm looking for a solution for this:

project = X and linkedIssue is EMPTY

As of now, JIRA by default doesn't support it. But if you have script runner plugin installed then you can do it via the following JQL

project = X and issueFunction not in hasLinks()

Do I have to restart something? I installed the trial of ScriptRunner, did the JQL you suggested and get 

Field 'issueFunction' does not exist or you do not have permission to view it.

Running Jira Cloud. Is this restricted to Jira Server?

NVM. found out that it's not working in Jira Cloud. Any idea how I can achieve this in Jira Cloud?
