Batch changing JIRA links/IDs

Dear community,

we currently have Testrail connected to JIRA (Cloud), with references both from Test Cases to User Stories, and Test Runs to Defects in jiRA.

We are now going to move the JIRA project from this Cloud instance to our own hosted JIRA Server.
This means that all the JIRA issues will get new IDs. We will keep a reference to the old JIRA ID in the new JIRA project, so we could easily get an export with a list of the old and new IDs.

My question is now, would somehow be possible to run a script or something like towards the testrail database to replace the old JIRA iD with the new one?
