You can get the status of an issue through REST api

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

You will get a json output which contains the status value , u can process it to get the status .

EDIT : Try below javascript

<script type="text/javascript">

function getCurrentStatus()
{
var statusname;
     AJS.$.ajax({
        url: "/rest/api/2/issue/XYZ-123",
        type: 'get',
        dataType: 'json',
        async: false,
        success: function(data) {
            statusname = data.fields.status.name;
        } 
     });
     return statusname;
}

alert("Status : " +getCurrentStatus())
</script>

What would I need to modify in above code to get it to work with JIRA 4.4.5?

Any help appreciated ;o)

For JIRA 4.4.5

function getCurrentStatus(){ var statusname; AJS.$.ajax({ url: "/rest/api/2.0.alpha1/issue/CAR-20", type: 'get', dataType: 'json', async: false, success: function(data) { statusname = data.fields.status.value.name; } }); return statusname; } alert("Status : " +getCurrentStatus())

For JIRA 4.4.5

function getCurrentStatus(){
var statusname;
     AJS.$.ajax({
        url: "/rest/api/2.0.alpha1/issue/XVY-123",
        type: 'get',
        dataType: 'json',
        async: false,
        success: function(data) {
            statusname = data.fields.status.value.name;
        } 
     });
     return statusname;
}
 
alert("Status : " +getCurrentStatus())
