As a user, I'd like to be able to use JQL for Epic Link for Next-Gen project epics

      Atlassian Status as of 12 December 2019

      Hi everyone,

      Customers can query on Next-gen epics using the parent =. If you want to combine Epics from both project types, an example of such a query would be:
 "Epic Link" = NPC-6 OR parent = NJDP-5

      The Parent field can now be selected as a column in the Global Issue Navigator and exported from Jira.

      Original request description

      WIth the deploy of the epics and linking the issues to the epics at the Next-Gen projects we can't use the JQL to return issues that are associated to an epic as we can do for classic projects.

      Steps to reproduce

      1. Create a next-gen project
      2. Create an epic
      3. Associate multiple issues to the epic
      4. Go to Issue Navigator and try to perform the search by Epic Link referencing the Next-Gen epic
      5. No results are displayed

      Expected results

      Return the list of issues that are linked to the referenced Epic

      Actual results

      Use parent() function to show the child issues of the Epic. Example:

      parent = EPIC-123
