Cannot change status of a bug using Jira Ruby

I'm working with Jira-Ruby, I can definitely update summary, description, comment of a bug by using JIRA api with ruby but its status.

I have researched and see that Status seems to be not a field. JIRA just support to update some fields as 'https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/jira-apis/jira-rest-apis/jira-rest-api-tutorials/updating-an-issue-via-the-jira-rest-apis mentioned. 

I would like to know if JIRA  supports to change status of a bug via API using Ruby and HOW

 

Thank you.

Change status means to do a transition. It means that you need to:

  • trasition is allowed by condition
  • all fileds are set according to validators

Good luck.
