Hi there,

According to: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/154568/jira-json-create-issue-with-status-resolved

The JIRA JSON Importer can set the resolution field in issues that it imports. But usually the resolution field (not Resolved) is not on the edit or create screen for an issue (and it should not be there). You could create the issue and then change the status using the appropriate REST method. More information athttps://answers.atlassian.com/questions/107630/jira-how-to-change-issue-status-via-rest

When an issue is created, its initial status is determined by the workflow and workflow scheme associated with the project. To move the issue to a different status, you need to take the issue through a workflow transition.
