Can you provide your exact JQL?

I would think you could use the following.

...AND issuekey not in (a,b,c) or “epic link” not in (a,b,c) 

The first part covers the actual epic issue keys and the second covers the issues that are part of those Epics. 

Thank you Jack , I am awaiting the users exact JQL.

So they are trying to exclude Epics that are part of an Initiative. The Initiative is the parent of the epic and used the field Parent link that came with Advanced Roadmaps.

Understand, I don’t use initiatives so things certainly may be different here but I can’t help but hope it is achievable. I have access to a premium test system so may try to play with it later today.
