JQL: How can I search for the issues associated to a group of epics identified from a subquery?

Specifically, I have have a workflow that allows me to set a status on an epic to "Groomed" and "Ready for Development" and many others.

I want to create a filter that always returns the issues associated with the epics that have a status of "Groomed" and "Ready for Development".

Found a solution:

issueFunction in issuesinEpics("type = epic AND project = XXXX AND status in (Groomed, \"Ready for Development\")")

Hi, I am looking for this too but get an error saying issueFunction does not exist. Are you using some plugin?

With standard JQL you can only execute your subquery, export the results and manually construct another JQL using the export epic issue keys. It works if it's just a one off job.

Standard JQL doesn't easily allow it but the results can be quickly found using our professional indexing service JQL Search Extensions.

You can find children of epics with the following extended JQL:

issue in childrenOfEpicsInQuery("status in (Groomed, 'Ready for Development')")
