there is no 'tool' provided to do these kinds of operations..

there are API's both java and REST that can be used to create tools like this.

there are 'quick' ways to do some things..

in eclipse, query all the workitems in a specific state. make sure to show the status column it the results table,
then select all rows, and right click on the status column and select change status
you can change up to 1000 workitems at a time
(each column will have it supported  operation)
