Remotely transitioning issues through workflow

I am running a script on an external server and want to move issues to a different state. So for instance;  a task currently is in state review and I want to put the task back to its doing state. 

Should I be using the JIRA REST API for this or is the JIRA CLI the best way to go? And if the jira rest api is the best way to go, what would be the url that I can use to communicate with (for JIRA Cloud)

I would use the rest API as it is available by default

You might have better reasons to use the JIRA CLI add-on though


Documentation for transitions over REST is here

The endpoint would be: https://<your-jira-url>/rest/api/latest/issue/
