Background: I have an org that uses person accounts and an appexchange package that does not support them. However when looking into why they're unsupported the only thing that does not work is that triggers designed for contacts are not firing on person accounts (expected, they fire account triggers instead).
However as the contact trigger is managed I can't just copy it over and apply it to accounts to get this working. I am free to write any apex needed in my own org, so I could for example write a brand new apex trigger on account that manually performed DML on the contact sObject. However I tried this and saw account triggers only running despite the explicit update op on a contact.
With all that said, is there any way to get salesforce to run contact triggers on my person account?
