Bulk update a link "blocked by"

Hi There,


I have about 3 Epics that are blocked by about 200 issues.  

I want to do a bulk update in JIRA to link all those 200 issues to the 3 Epics  (If even possible) 

I want to do this so that it shows in Portfolio that those 3 epics can only be done if ALL the work has been completed.  

As this is an unusually large number, I want to know if there is maybe another approach that I can should try?

The only way is to search for all theese issues using custom jql function created by yourself or found in plugin. Then use bulk change for them.
