How could I set custom field for test plan when I create it?


I use tm4j v6.7.2 and I want to create TestPlan with custom fields.

But when I try add smth there (in creation request) - server answers that

The custom field <field name> was not found.

 Also I have tried fields mentioned in documentation


// Simple request, using only required fields
  "projectKey": "JQA",
  "name": "Plan for a new version"

// Simple request, using custom fields
  "projectKey": "JQA",
  "name": "Plan for a new version",
  "customFields": {
    "single choice": "Propulsion engines",
    "multichoice": "Brazil, England",
    "checkbox": "false",
    "datepicker": "2017-03-02T16:15:00.000Z",
    "decimal number": 12.12,
    "number": 100,
    "multi line text": "<h1>Plan for a new version</h1><p>Ignite the secondary propulsion engines</p>",
    "single line": "Ignite the secondary propulsion engines"

// Full request
  "projectKey": "JQA",
  "name": "Plan for a new version",
  "objective": "The objective.",
  "folder": "/Orbiter/Cargo Bay",
  "status": "Approved",
  "owner": "vitor.pelizza",
  "labels": ["Smoke", "Functional"],
  "issueLinks": ["JQA-123", "JQA-456"],
  "testRunKeys": ["JQA-R123", "JQA-R456"],
  "customFields": {
    "single choice": "Propulsion engines",
    "multichoice": "Brazil, England"


So, How could I set custom field during testplan creation (or after)? 

May be anyone knows how to "mark" testplan? I need smth like labels
