JQL for Epics


First of all, Epics' labels support spaces like "Hello World". But not issue labels? (at list on JIRA 5.0)


Well, that could be a user interface constraint and spaces are really supported by the data model. So... how to build a jql sentence to search labels with spaces?

lables in ("Hello World")

does not work (from the UI).


2. To get all the stories related to an epic issue:

"Epic Links" = <Issue Link>

What is the <Issue Link> and its syntax?

"Epic Links" = SSC-25

where SSC-25 is the key of the Epic issue?

Many thanks,

Those are issues of the UI of the 5.0 version and maybe others. It works as expected in the latest 5.2.
