You need to find your transition IDs, then use it like so:

if issue.fields.status in('open','reopened'):# Move the ticket from opened to closed. jira.transition_issue(ticket, transitionId=131)

jira-python documents discovering and making transitions here.

Hope this helps you,


Sadly that link appears broken.
