    The error which you are getting is due to backend workflow which sets the Status field of any Task automatically.

    This is working as designed. If you would move the incident to Work In Progresss, then the Task will have the status Assigned automatically.

    If the Incident is in "assigned", the Task will be "staged". You can say, this is the planing phase.  Move the Incident to Work In Progress and the Task get Assigned. Snowball principle, you can't
    start to work on a child-entity, before the master-entity is active.
