Bot won't update my JSON to "Done"

Guys, I am under a tight deadline to demo a Templater setup for a client and I am at my wit’s end. I was able to have a script created that updates a JSON file programmatically and CLI launches templater.ps1 in windows PowerShell. The AE project is rendering just fine but Templater is not updating the “render-status” of the JSON entries. This means that every time I push new data to Templater, through the CLI, it renders all the previous entries as well as the one I need to be rendered.
I have tried everything I can think of to make this work. I’ve looked at every video and read everything in the knowledge base but I can’t figure out what is causing the problem.
Any help would be awesome. I have to demo this in a few days and I’m afraid I won’t be able to get this to work before then. Thanks in advance!

@kdav82 Are you using a local JSON file, or a JSON feed/URL? If you’re using a JSON feed, have you registered a script with the post-output or post-job event in Templater’s Preferences, and if you have, what is the script/incantation that you’re using? When you are using the CLI, are you launching the Bot, or are you launching a batch render job? If you’re using a render job, it will ignore the render-status. The downside of using the CLI to run the Bot is that it won’t ever spin down-- the process needs to be ended manually, where a batch render job can close on completion.
