When I change the case status with the API to a case stated which is Closed. Then the end date of the case and the end date of the case roles is not set.

When I change the case status from the user interface the end date is set and the end of the case roles is set.

Is this behaviour correctly or should I file an issue and solve the bug in the API?

I'd suggest this is a question of whether there should be low-level and high-level variations of the API. Typically a low-level api is not aware of the semantics (e.g. what "closed" means in real life - it just sets the right field to the value given), whereas the higher level api might. So should there be a separate higher-level function that knows it should call three low-level api functions when "closed", and let the lower-level functions only do one thing each.
