Cannot set or update status from .Csv using Jira CLI Edited


I am able to import CSV data using JIRA CLI and mapped fields and values from an file. But somehow, the status is always set to "To Do" during import, eventhough I've mapped the status value "processed" (which does not exist in JIRA) to "Done" (which is a status in the bug's jira workflow) in the file.

field.STATUS1 = status 
value.status.processed = Done

All other field and value mappings, even more complex ones including breaks, work. Can anyone explain what's the problem about importing status values?

Executing the CLI comand does not give any error messages.

Even renaming the status column in the CSV and adding value "Done" to the column in the CSV directly does not help.

Is there a way to import issues and set the status corretly using JIRA CLI?

JIRA Version: 7.3.1

CLI Version: 6.5.0

Thank you!

Kind Regards,
