How to get the value of current issuekey in my jql?

I am using query issue custom fields (Multi linking fields), so that i get all the issues resulted by by jql and select any of them for my customfield.

So my jql requirement goes as below:

project = <prjName> and issuetype != <issueTypr> and issue in linkedIssues("%currentkey%")

But i am unable to get the currentkey value in there, and my jql fails. Is there any way to get the current issue-key in the jql.

Any default variable provided by the JIRA for the current issue-key.

Any help would be appreciated.

I do not know a solution with standard JIRA functionality.

But Plugin "Script Runner" includes a JQL function     linkedIssuesOf(Subquery, [link name])

By that you might define a subquery in a way to get your current issue.
