S-JQL find all epics without child any bugs


I have a structure populated with epics at the root level, which children that are either stories or bugs. 

I'd like to filter the Structure so that I can see all root items (epics) that have no bugs. 

Any help?

Hi Ahmad,


You will need scriptrunner for this

If i am not mistaken you can do this with following JQL 

issuetype = epic and issueFunction not in hasLinks("is Epic of")

More info can be found here https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/wiki/display/GRV/Scripted+JQL+Functions

It is possible there are other plugins that can do this, but for the moment i am not aware of any.
