On my lightning record page i have a standard "Highlight Panel" component that displays some data in addition to some more components below (tab component with record detail component, etc.)

When I change some values using the standard detail page component, the corresponding values in the highlight bar get updated as well (e.g. when i change the oppty amount).

My question now is: What event to I need to fire in my custom lightning component (which is included in a another tab, next to the record details) to notify the highlight panel about record changes (happening through interaction with my component) without refreshing the entire view?

I cannot seem to find any applicable event in the documentation...

The force:editRecord will fire when you update the records from the standard component and the handler will handle that event. Call the required method from the handler. Add these two line in your custom component.

<aura:dependency resource="markup://force:editRecord" type="EVENT" />
<aura:handler event="force:refreshView" action="{!c.doInit}" />
