Querying and updating Assignable substates

We are using SubEntityStates in our workflow that looks something like this (substates in brackets): Backlog -> Ready -> Development [In Dev -> Code Review -> Dev Done] -> Testing [...] -> Done [Accepted, LIVE, ...] I'm building internal integration that uses the targetprocess REST API v1 to (among other things) query and update entity states. I can already achieve these for the parent states, but I can't find the current substate of an Assignable in the API response and trying to update the EntityState to a substate returns with an error. For example, I have a UserStory that shows on the web interface to be in "In Dev" state, but the EntityState returned by the API is "Development" (the parent state). When I try to update EntityState to "Code Review" this is what I get: ``` POST /Assignable/60091 {"EntityState": {"Id": 2961}} { "Status": "BadRequest", "Message": "Invalid entity state 'Code Review' for UserStory.", "Type": "Presentational", "Details": { "Items": [ { "Type": "BrokenRule", "FieldPath": { "EntityKind": "UserStory", "Column": "EntityState" }, "Message": { "Token": "Invalid entity state '{entityStateName}' for {entityKind}.", "Data": { "entityStateName": "Code Review", "entityKind": "UserStory" }, "Value": "Invalid entity state 'Code Review' for UserStory." }, "Details": null, "Resolution": null } ] }, "ErrorId": "067dd05f-9adf-42db-94e6-d999bdd90cc0" } ``` Am I missing something or is this not supported by the current APIs?
