How to paste Excel Table so Jira links convert to macro?

We've prioritized a list of Initiatives in Jira for our project, but due to issues with how Jira/Portfolio manages priorities the order we set is not maintained.  To work around this I want to export the list of Initiatives from Jira to Excel, order them properly, then paste into Conlfuence creating a static table.  So far so good.  I'm able to export, and copy / paste into Confluence creating a table.  The problem is that the Jira issue links do not convert to Jira issue macros.  I want the issue macro so it shows the issue summary and the issue status.  If I paste the individual issue links one at a time it would auto-convert the Jira issue link to the macro, but when you paste an entire table from Excel it leaves it as the display name / URL.  Is there a way to paste a list of Jira issues into Confluence as a table so that the links convert to the Jira issue macro OR a way to force Confluence to execute the autoconvert after the fact?
