is it possible to use a sql-like syntax to update multiple jira records?

Hi. We have a field "Build Number". I would like to change, for instance, all instances of 11.05.31 in the Build Number column to 110531. I know we can make this change in Bulk Update, but that method would take far too long because there are many changes needed. Is there a sql-like syntax that I might use? I would simply change the syntax for each Build Number and execute. Thanks.

There is no "legal" method that is going to be faster than a bulk update.

You could use the jira CLI but that would be slower, or use a groovy script or plugin, but that's probably more work than you want. Fastest is sql but then you need to reindex jira.

Yes, legally, you should use JCLI setFieldValue inside of a runFromIssueList action
