Incorrect Component status using REST API for Incident


While trying to create incident through REST API using URL{page_id}/incidents with body as below. The component status is shown as "Operational" instead of Degraded Performance.  Not sure why!? I tried setting different values, none of them work.

"incident": {
"name": "Sample incident",
"status": "investigating",
"body": "Sample message",
"components": {
"component_id": "degraded_performance"
"component_ids": "b2t1x2dz246g"

"incident": {
"name": "Sample Incident",
"body": "Sample Message",
"components": {
"b2t1x2dz246g": "degraded_performance"
"component_ids": [

True, got this sorted out after raising a support request with atlassian team. Unfortunately, documentation sample payload doesn't reflect this.
