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.

Bulk change doesn't support changing, adding, or removing Issue Links.
