You can not change the status as a field - you must transition the issue - see the REST Endpoint documentation for:

POST /rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey}/transitions

Status is not a "field", it's an indicator of position in the workflow.  You have to use transitions to change the status.

For REST, see the REST Endpoint documentation

Oops.  Sorry, Petar beat me to it.
