JIRA REST API Query to return only status name (e.g.; Closed)

I’m using JIRA v6.1.2.

The following API query returns status description, status id, and status name for a for a given issueIdOrKey:


 How do I change the API query to only return the status name (e.g.; Closed) for a given issueIdOrKey?

I do not believe there is a way.  It would be through the expand parameter if it was possible.

I tried below query in unix and it worked,

curl -u username:password -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://jiraurl/rest/api/2/issue/ticketnumber?fields=status 2>&1 | grep -o -P '(?<="name":").*(?=","id":")'

change --> username , password, jiraurl and ticketnumber
