Bulk Delete Issue Links

Some users improperly created an absurd number of links between issues of two two projects. This is causing serious JIRA performance impacts.
Removing these links manually is not viable, so I would like to remove these links directly into the database?
Is that possible?
Is there any other way to bulk remove issue links?

See the answer to this question: Bulk delete issue links.

Hi @Bob Swift [Bob Swift Atlassian Add-ons] could you make the link above available again please? I get access denied.

The link is still valid. If it shows a blank page then just refresh your browser and it should show the page correctly the second time. It is some display bug in Confluence/Questions :(.

Hi bob, I still get access denied, thanks for replying though.

Oh, yes, the recent upgrade of Atlassian Questions for Cloud prevents anonymous access like it was before - very frustrating :(. 

You need to login with your Atlassian id to get access.

Is there no answer to this question yet? I have about 280 issues to delete and the window doesn't even refresh each time I manually delete so it's hard to figure out where I left off without waiting for an error. This is pretty frustrating :(

Hi Tiffany,

It would be possible to write a JAVA Program communicating with the REST API of your JIRA Server: First you read the Link-IDs of your issues in focus and then delete them (also using the REST API)
