How to block transition if the Linked issues are in open state except for a certain issue type in linked issues.

I want to block transition of a issue rather put a validation saying that If any linked issues is in open state block  further transition but the condition is that If there is a "Epic"(issue type) linked to the issue and no other linked issues or an Epic along with other closed issues is linked irrespective of Epic status it should allow me to do the transitions.Basically the validation should not happen for Epic issue Linked.The code I am using for Now in Validation is:

def found = (issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks( {it?.destinationObject?.statusObject?.name != 'Closed'} || issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks({it?.sourceObject?.statusObject?.name != 'Closed'})
return !found


But this block all Linked issue which are not in Closed state.

How do i make this code work but not checking for the status of Epic.
