Is there a way to bulk load the product backlog with stories and epics that already exist?

We have imported stories and epics from excel spreadsheets and now need to load them all into the Product Backlog for the team to start Sprint planning.  Is there a way to bulk load all of these instead of using the "add work item" button and loading them one at a time?

You can run a query to show all the work items then do a bulk edit. This can be done in the web client or the eclipse client.

The fields you need to edit are the "planned for" and the "filed against" fields.

Very very detailed article on querying:
