Hi Ramya!

This script will display the number of issues that are in an epic : (i.e. that have Epic links):

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

//Check that the issue is an Epicif( == "Epic")
    //Grab necessary components/managers    def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.issueLinkManager

    //Get the inward links of the issue    def inwardLinks = issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(
    def count = 0

    //Loop through all of the links, checking for Epic links    inwardLinks.each {
        if( == "Epic-Story Link")
            //Add to count when inward link is an Epic link            count+=1

    return count as int

For this Script field, you need to ensure that the template and searcher that you are using are for a Number Field. 

Also, this might be possible via ScriptRunner's JQL, this community post might be helpful :

Hope this helps.
