ScriptRunner REST Endpoint: Can't trigger events Edited

I have a ScriptRunner Rest Endpoint which upon receiving a response will add a comment and transition an issue. I would expect these actions to generate events like Issue Commented or Generic Event which should be picked up by the ScriptRunner Listeners. When I perform the same actions in the ScriptRunner Console I can see that my listeners do in fact run as expected. However nothing I do in the REST Endpoint can cause a Listener to run. Is there something I am missing or another way to accomplish what I need?


Here is an example function I used to try to generate an event, it works in Script Console but doesn't appear to in the REST Endpoint.

def dispatchGenericEvent(MutableIssue issue){    

 IssueEventManager issueEventManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueEventManager()    IssueEventBundleFactory issueEventFactory = (IssueEventBundleFactoryComponentAccessor.getComponent(IssueEventBundleFactory.class)
    IssueEventBundle eventBundle = issueEventFactory.wrapInBundle(new IssueEvent(issue, null, botUser, EventType.ISSUE_GENERICEVENT_ID, true))    issueEventManager.dispatchEvent(eventBundle)


MutableIssue issue = issueManager.getIssueObject("HELPDESK-20092")

For anyone that runs into the same problem I never did figure out how to generate events directly from the ScriptRunner REST Endpoint.

However since my use case involved performing a transition on an issue I could add another post function to run a custom script which generated the event. Which is strange that it works because the post function immediately before my custom script is supposed to throw an event anyway...
