Is there a JQL "Where" Clause


Does anyone know if there is a "where" statment in the base version of JQL, I want to create subqueries for a few of my filters? 

Thank you,

No.  JQL is not SQL.  A JQL query effectively *is* the "where" clause, it doesn't do anything except give the user a list of issues that match the "where"

Thanks for clearing that up Nic.

As Nic said, a JQL statement "starts" from what in SQL is like the where clause.

Maybe, if I understand the question, you can emulate this behavior with an add on:
