Find the status of an issue

// ES5
// We are using an ES5 Polyfill for Promise support. Please note that if you don't explicitly
// apply a catch exceptions will get swallowed. Read up on ES6 Promises for further details.
jira.findIssue(issueNumber)
  .then(function(issue) {
    console.log('Status: ' + issue.fields.status.name);
  })
  .catch(function(err) {
    console.error(err);
  });

// ES6
jira.findIssue(issueNumber)
  .then(issue => {
    console.log(`Status: ${issue.fields.status.name}`);
  })
  .catch(err => {
    console.error(err);
  });

// ES7
async function logIssueName() {
  try {
    const issue = await jira.findIssue(issueNumber);
    console.log(`Status: ${issue.fields.status.name}`);
  } catch (err) {
    console.error(err);
  }
}
