MassUpdate all Quotes from server (via module post_execute)

Hi there,


We have numerous sites we're upgrading to 7.9, and as part of it, we've refactored a lot of custom logic into sugar logic as part of the sidecar quotes.


However, after we upgrade the site to 7.9, I seem to be unable to recalculate these values programmatically. This results in some of the values appearing incorrectly until a user saves the record.


I attempted to do what is advised in this post: Recalculating Calculated Fields en mass ( update ) « Sugar Developer Blog – SugarCRM 

The only difference is that I used sugarQuery to obtain the list of IDs. Here's what I did:

foreach ( $results as $record ) {
    $focus = BeanFactory::getBean('Quotes',$record['id']);
    $focus->update_date_modified = false;
    $focus->update_modified_by = false;
    $focus->tracker_visibility = false;
    echo "<br>Re-saved Quote $count of $length \n";

However, while I get the messages that the quote was re-saved, the value doesn't change.


I next looked at the MassUpdate API. However, this is obviously meant to be run from the client, as opposed to the server. While I can see that it instantiates an object from the SugarJobMassUpdate class, there doesn't seem to be a straightforward way to give this class a list of Ids to update.


I'm now wondering if I should just create an instance of MassUpdateApi, and provide it a new RestService, and the expected paramaters directly i.e.


$api = new MassUpdateApi();
$test = $api->massUpdate(new RestService(),array('module' => 'Quotes', 'massupdate_params' => array('uid' => array('ac2e49b0-17ca-11e8-8f8c-00163ef1f82f'))));


Is this not advisable? Is there another option I've not explored yet? Does anyone have any experience with server side mass-updates?
