How do I find Orphaned epics?

I would like to find a JQL query that will identify "Orphaned" epics (i.e. epics that are NOT child issues of a Feature or Initiative.) in my project.

Is there something in the Jira documentation under Advanced JQL Searching that could help me with this?


1 answer

I'm assuming your are using Advanced roadmaps as you are referring to items in the hierarchy above EPIC. That being the case you could use the JQL

issuetype = EPIC and "Parent Link" is EMPTY

See: for more details.
