Michael has given you the link to the SQL, but it is absolutely critical that you understand the full process.

You absolutely must:

  • Stop JIRA
  • Take a full backup of the database
  • Apply your SQL
  • Restart JIRA
  • Re-index it

Never never never write to an active JIRA database - in many cases, you'll be lucky and just end up with minor corruption of the index which can be fixed, but you can end up with a corrupted and irrecoverable database.

(On the last point about re-indexing, if your changes are limited to a known set of issues, you can just use project re-index or even just an edit of the affected issues.  But you must reindex them somehow)
