Hi Ashish - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

To update existing data, create a separate Scheduled trigger rule.

Have it run every 10 days or something - that part doesn't matter, it just needs to be more than 0 and you are going to do this probably in a day.

For the trigger, use JQL and write a JQL statement that includes the issues you want to update for one particular component. You probably want to create this and test as a filter first before putting it in your trigger. 

Then create a new Action for Edit Issue. 

Select the Component field and put in your value. 

Be sure to save each step and at the end publish it. Make sure the Rule is active. 

Then simply click the Run rule button once to run it immediately. That should update your issues. 

After you have been through all of the different components one by one (you have modify your JQL and Edit issue value each time and re-publish first for each component value), be sure to make the Rule inactive so it doesn't keep randomly running. 

I hope that helps!
