Running event update on all issues in a project

We calculate priority through a listener and 2 scripted fields. We have made a change and need to trigger issue update event on all issues in one of projects. Is there a way through script-runner to do this?

Likely a project reindex will do it for you. Test in staging of course

I'm not sure I understand what/why you are you trying to update on the issues after you have calculated priority?

Because the listener adjust built in priority as well on issue update/create only. The arrows on all older closed issues and currently open issues before implementation are wrong. I have added the logic to a live service desk environment.

I just had to do something very similar - also with a listener that sets priority based on two custom fields. My use case was fixing issues imported from CSV for which the listener did not set priority (still not sure why). Rather than modify the existing listener, I created a second listener with pretty much the same code except listening for a custom event (that I also created) and without the check for updates to the custom fields (which were set correctly on import). I then used the following code to fire the custom event:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def user = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName('automation')

def iem = ComponentAccessor.getIssueEventManager()
iem.dispatchEvent(Long.valueOf(10100), issue, user, false)

That was done in a test script field. I then wrapped that with this: in order to fire the event on issues returned from a JQL query (project where priority was empty).
