Why RTC Status field is shown as read only in RTC API

Test Jazz (111) | asked Mar 16 '17, 8:26 a.m.

  We are using RTC API for integrating RTC

In that we observed that Status field is shown as read only in api but actually on RTC ui(web) it is not read only and can be writable and changeable 

we had check rtc java api as well as rtc rest api , in both the case it is showing as read only 

What is the reason for showing that field as read only where actually it is not read only.

You can not write the status, as it is not a normal attribute. The state of a work item must be changed using a workflow action. There is a deprecated API call setState2(Identifier value) to set the state directly available in the Client API , but it should not be used as it does not trigger a state change and that could impact behavior related to workflow actions. See for a more complete discussion.

 Thank you for your answer

but what about REST API where we need to write status using rest api .
which article we need to refer to write status on rest api.

The RTC reportable REST API is intended for reporting only, not updating the artifacts. See the Introduction section of the document.

I assume that Test Jazz is referring to the OSLC REST API or the internal REST API, and not the reportable REST API.
