I need help with updating existing bulk records just for the sake of firing a trigger.
Below is my situation:
We have more than 1 million contacts in our org. Recently we installed a managed package. Two objects in this managed package are used as related lists on Contact. I created a new trigger which on contact insert, it inserts a record in the related list object. This trigger is also fired on after update. The trigger is working for newly created contacts but for the existing old records, we have to click on edit and then hit save to fire the trigger. Is there a way to create an update scenario on all these bulk contact records to fire the trigger so that it populates/updates the related list object?
