Updating transitions using PUT method of the issue

Hi all,

I am working on doing an integration with Jira using the V2 and V3 API's, one of the problems I am facing is that I can not update the current status using the PUT API even though it is documented.

Sample Payload{IssueKey}/

 "update": {
 "comment": [
 "add": {
 "body": "Bug has been fixed."
 "transition": {
 "id": "5"
I can see the comment gets added but the transition doesn't change.
If I use the following API it works for transition only{IssueKey}/transitions/

"transition": {
 "id": "5"

Can someone please help to identify if it is a bug or known behavior?
If it is a bug, please let me know how to file the same?

Hi Rajesh,

For me also when I try to update with comment , can't update. But with only transition id, it's working fine same as like you.

I'm also interested to know how to add the comment and other fields along with transition.
