groovy script is not working in upgraded 6.3.13 while the same was working on jira 3.13 version

We are getting  getting following error in logs while we are trying to run a groovy script.


groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: static com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEventManager.dispatchEvent() is applicable for argument types: (java.lang.Long, com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueImpl, com.atlassian.jira.crowd.embedded.ofbiz.OfBizUser, null, null, null, java.util.HashMap, java.lang.Boolean) values: [10879, NEWLTA-347, sethuraj:3, null, null, null, [eventsource:workflow], ...]



code we are using is as follows:

if(business.value == 'ABSA'){
log.error("inside ABSA Business")
//IssueEventManager.dispatchEvent(10877, updatedIssue,
Long eventId = 10879
IssueEventManager.dispatchEvent(eventId, updatedIssue, ManagerFactory.getWorkflowManager().getRemoteUser(transientVars),comment, null, changeGroup, params, true);
//IssueEventManager.dispatchEvent(10879, updatedIssue, appUser.getDirectoryUser(),comment, null, changeGroup, params, true);

A lot has changed between JIRA 3.13 and JIRA 6.3.13 and that class has changed with it.

The error is pretty clear : the method no longer exists.

And if you take a look here: you can see alternatives.

So you'll need to adapt your Groovy Script.
