Script that can change unlinked references within an issue into a link?

I have a large number of issues with typed references to related issues.  I need to convert these references into links to the respective referenced issues.  Is this possible?

You will have to create a script to accomplish this utilizing the JIRA REST API. Retrieve the value of the custom field (or whatever) with the reference then Link that to the target JIRA issue. I will use the JIRACLI and shell script for this.

I'll give this a shot. Thanks!
