Bulk remove/change issue links in Jira

I have some tickets with 100+ issue links associated with them.  Is there any way to bulk remove/change links without having to individually delete each link one-by-one?  Very time consuming when a large change needs to be made.  I have looked all over the forums, but with no success.  There are other great bulk change capabilities, but I can't find anything on issue links.

Thanks!

@Andrew, have you tried exporting the issues to excel, removing the links and then importing?

Thank you.  I have not tried that.  Will that change the issue ID?  Trying to find a better way, but perhaps that could work.  I guess there is no way to do this within the tool as you can with the other bulk updates?

no - the key will remain the same - try it out on a single issue (preferably in a dev server) to get the feel of it.

This looks like it could work in theory. However, this is a show stopper: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRACLOUD-63388
