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 !

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

All the best!
