For example, I created and Epic issue (SSP-30) with the "XXX" label and related some other issues.
Geeting all the issues related to that Epic is easy if you know the Epic label:
1. "Epic Label" in ("XXX") -> returns SSP-30 (only the Epic not its related issues).
2. "Epic Link" = SSP-30 -> returns the related issues by the "XXX" label.
But... and the REVERSE WAY?
If I got an issue SSP-58 how can I inquire whether it contains the Epic Label "XXX" so it is releted to the SSP-30 Epic issue? From the Epic Panel is trivial, I know. But from JIRA?
AFAIK, only a custom script, or commercial plugin like jql-tricks provides that level of query power. More info: http://www.j-tricks.com/jqlt-usage.html (scroll down to the "linkedAllIssues()" ... something like that may assist out-of-the-box). I had a requirement for something they didn't support and I emailed them, and was stunned to find they just had updated the package and made it available within days :)
