I’ve researched a bit about this and I think the issue is related to the line 1307 of the file /includes/api/api-helpers.php (plugin version 5.12.3). This line says: 'post_status' => 'any', and it doesn’t allow you to change it via filters. Is there a way to change it to another value in order to force it to accept custom post statuses?
