You can not just "set the status" of an issue.  Your code will need to push the issue through a transition to take it from the current status into a new one. is an example of a script that transitions an issue.

Thans for your reply @Nic Brough -Adaptavist- I know how to transition an issue through script runner.

What I need to do is how to validate the body which is pass to my script runner endpoint and read the received status

Any idea
