Is it possible to change jira issue status with python-jira?

I want to change jira issue status with python-jira.The python-jira API is http://jira-python.readthedocs.org/en/latest/ .I can't find any way to do this. I was trying to use issue.update(status="Closed").But it didn't work.I found Issue status and workflow inhttps://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Issue+status+and+workflow .But I still don't know what to do.Can anyone help me out?

You need to find your transition IDs, then use it like so:

if issue.fields.status in('open','reopened'):# Move the ticket from opened to closed. jira.transition_issue(ticket, transitionId=131)

jira-python documents discovering and making transitions here.

Hope this helps you,
