How do I bulk update a single field for all historical records?

I have a few months of historical records. I have an excel/csv file that has these issues with story points associated with them. How do I simply merge those story point values for each of the issues into the JIRA issues? I've tried uploading but that only adds records...is the easiest solution to just do that and then delete the old records?

An option is to write a simple REST client that reads the CSV and then update the existing tickets in JIRA.

Might not be worth it if have the option to delete the existing records but deleting and recreating means you will lose all the history on those tickets.
