JQL to compare parent.field to child.field for all issues in a Project?

Hi there,


Looking for some JQL and/or ScriptRunner help.

Within a Project called MAP, I have Epic & Story issue types. All of these issues have a Custom Field called "Epic/Theme".

I would like to find all Story issues where the Story."Epic/Theme" <> Epic."Epic/Theme".

At the moment I can only do this by specifying as "Epic/Theme" in the JQL.

project = MAP AND "Epic/Theme" = ITO AND issuetype = Story AND issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("project = MAP and issuetype = Epic and \"Epic/Theme\" != ITO", "is Epic of")

Does anyone have any advice on how to move this up a level so I can remove the "hard-coded" values?

Many thanks,
