Jira Query Language, search EPIC key using corresponding story

I am trying to get the Epic issue key using the issue key of one of its stories. What would be the query that gives in this result.



Let's suppose there is an EPIC : PG-01, and a story which is linked to it PG-02, I tried searching with "Epic Link" in ("PG-02"), doesn't give the expected result

Hi Mukul, 

You are trying to to use Epic LInk field which is a field on the story issue type and not the epic.

If you have script runner then you can easily use story key to find connected epic using

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("key=PG-02", "has Epic")
