how to ADD a custom field to an existing issue with the API

Given a project and some issues in it, I want to create a new custom field and populate it for some issues.

I see that the editmeta api returns the list of fields that are already on the issue and can be edited (updated). But how do I edit the metadata itself?

Hey David, welcome to our developer community.

You can create a custom field using the Create custom field API. Use the Edit issue API to add data to your chosen custom field once it’s been created. Let me know if this helps!
