Status and resolution are two different things.

Resolution is a field you can set using REST to set a field, as per documentation. Status is an indicator of where an issue is in its workflow, it changes when you push issues through transitions, which you can do as per the REST documentation.

the input json should be like this

{
    "update": {
        "comment": [
            {
                "add": {
                    "body": "Bug has been fixed."
                }
            }
        ]
    },
    "fields": {
        "assignee": {
            "name": "bob"
        },
        "resolution": {
            "name": "Fixed"
        }
    },
    "transition": {
        "id": "5"
    }
}
