Can you bulk edit the epic link field?

When I try to bulk edit issue epic link shows as an available option but there is nothing to edit (no text box or drop down). Am I missing something pretty obvious?

The Epic Link field is a calculated field (i.e. it's not real or stored in the database), it exists purely to allow JQL searches to search for issues linked to a parent issue. The actual link between an Epic and its stories is implemented using an issue link, not a field. There's no way to edit this link directly.


Thanks Shaun. Not the answer I was hoping for but helps me figure out my migration plan

Shaun, how might I recreate the link between an Epic and a story with a query into the db? I'm struggling to see how the issuelink table works.
