Here is a solution that utilizes the API to accomplish your goal. Note that I have never tried it, so I cannot vouch for its legitimacy, but it looks legit to me. I would recommend looking over it very carefully before trying it, and testing it on a non-production instance first. https://github.com/chrisboyke/jira_search_replace
