Integrity checker reports errors after status change through the API


I have a listener that changes issue status when assignee is changed.

Code looks like this:

MutableIssue issue = (MutableIssue) event.getIssue();


And it looks working but integrity checker reports errors about this issues:

Check workflow current step entries

ERROR: TEST-13 - The current step associated with the workflow entry with id 11000 has an incorrect stepId. (JRA-4539)

What is the right way to change issue status?

You can't just set a status, it's not a field.

It's an indication of where an issue is in the workflow, and as such you can't simply set it, you need to push the issue through the transitions in the workflow from status X to status Y.

Have a look in the api for IssueService.transition - that's the process you need.
