Update status via REST API - not working

I have successfully been able to test the REST API command via postman to update the assignee and get lists of issues; however, whenever I try to change the status via the transition id, I get an empty response and it doesn't do anything.  Below is an example of the body content in my PUT request.  Any ideas why it isn't working?



"update": {        

"comment": [{ "add": {"body": "Applied Logic Deploy" } } ] },    

"transition": {         "id": "61"     }

Any updates on this. 
Am also facing same 405 issue.
