Imported via csv external import into production after testing in dev and test, but discovered issue!

We ran a csv import of issues into an existing production used project and discovered a problem. The csv file incorrectly put the assignee/reporter to the full name; for example, Alex Karpow, which created a new login alexkarpow and assigned the issues to bad logins instead of for example the real login of alparow that is what we have in Microsoft AD domain controllers and is what is needed for authentication. We cannot delete the production used project or restore to a day prior to the bad csv import as a lot of new issues have gone in already. Do you have any way for us to fix this issue--in that, change the reporter/assignees in bulk to the correct logins? This is affecting production project work.

JIRA Command Line Interface can always be used in situations like this if bulk edit doesn't handle the situation for some reason. Use updateIssue action together with one of the run actions like runFromIssueList
