What's the JQL to search for Epics without Parent Links?

I'm looking for the JQL to find Epics without parent Initiatives.  I have tried:

issuetype = Epic AND "Parent Link" is EMPTY


issuetype = Epic AND "Parent Link" is NULL

Both return no results (when there should be!)

Russell, the "parent Link" IS EMPTY is supported in Portfolio 2.4+ for JIRA Server.  


It doesn't look like it's available yet in Cloud.


Hope this helps.


Thanks Peter, we are using Cloud.

I guess I will have to build the report manually until the Cloud functionality catches up.
