Can I set issue status upon import using jelly scripts?

I'm doing an import of 7000+ issues from a CSV into JIRA using a jelly script. I've worked out the status of each of the issues with some being closed and others being in progress.

Can I set this status upon issue creation?

My other option is to create a custom field with whatever the imported status is and then do a bulk move. But doing it upon issue creation is certainly more elegant. What do others do?

Hi Greg,

I have not seen an attribute name 'status' for CreateIssue. So the answer would be no.

What you could do is to use TransitionWorkflow to set the status after the Creation of the Issue. But since that (depends on the complexity of your Workflow) could be pretty painful, I would stick with your own solution using a customfield and then bulk move.
