Is there a way to BULK UPDATE "Issue Links"?

Is there a way to BULK UPDATE "Issue Links"? We are switching from a link type of "Blocked" and "Blocked By" to "Implements" and "Implemented by".

I need an answer to this as well...I have tickets w/ dependencies named, "Depends on" and "is needed by" but I want to switch them to the Gantt-Chart Plugin equivalents. Would like a way to bulk change this instead of individually.

Interested in this too. If it's not possible, I would like this to be added as a feature.

For my scenario I have 5 backlogs, that are similar enough that we want them all cross linked.

LO-7091, LO-7806, LO-8359, LO-8362, LO-8364

I want to be able to do a bulk edit on all of these backlogs, go to the "change/update" link option,  enter LO-7091, LO-7806, LO-8359, LO-8362, LO-8364 and for the JIRA to correctly add the necessary/missing links – automatically taking care of the fact that we cannot link to ourselves.
