Jira filter/search by epic name?

I want to bulk edit tickets that share a GH epic name. Using suggested syntax like... AND "Epic Name" = "my epic" only returns the Epic itself, not all the child stories labelled as such.

Any way to do what I'm asking?

"Epic Link" = XXX-16 where XXX-16 is the Epic.

Hi @Timothy Chin , would you please bring some light on how to filter more than one epic in a search? I want to create a board with several epics as the criteria.

Thanks for your help!

Hi @Pablo Gonzalez,

I recently ran a query where I searched for issues in either 'epic 1' or 'epic 2' using parenthesis:

project = "Project Name" and ("Epic Link" = XXX-001 or "Epic Link" = XXX-002)

Hope this helps !

Hello, I have similar situation, and I want to see swimlanes by epics. The filter query works fine, but the swimlane by epics does not produce desired effect. The swimlane config displays no issues on the board. Anyway, I can view them grouped by epics on my board?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you @Mark Hodge for this! Yes, that made the trick and it really will help us a lot.

All the best!
