API Endpoint for Custom Field Configuration

Is there a way to configure custom field configuration schemes and scheme options via an API endpoint in Jira Server?

The behaviour we are looking for appears to be available in the Jira Cloud, according to this documentation: https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/rest/v2/api-group-issue-custom-field-options/#api-group-issue-custom-field-options

However, this does not work in Jira Server. And this is the most similar item in the Jira Server documentation: https://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/REST/8.5.16/#api/2/customFieldOption

Specifically, we want to be able to edit/create a custom field configuration scheme and edit/create contexts and options for that scheme.

Hello @Brady McIntosh 

It's been a while since I've used Jira Server, but I don't remember it having the field configuration schemes feature. I thought that feature was in Jira Cloud only. Are you able to create and allocate a field configuration scheme via the Jira Server GUI?

With Jira Cloud, even with the Field Configuration Scheme endpoint of the v3 REST API, you can't create / edit the schemes, only look them up either globally or for a Project with a GET request, or assign them to a Project with a PUT request, so you're still limited to using the GUI for creating / editing them in the first place.

Thanks for the information. We're able to do all of this through the GUI, we were just hoping for some API implementation for it.
