I'm diving into Jira cloud REST API and found that in some endpoints we have two available parameters to set or update jira fields: fields and update.
What's the difference between these fields?
Docs says about fields param:
List of issue screen fields to update, specifying the sub-field to update and its value for each field. This field provides a straightforward option when setting a sub-field. When multiple sub-fields or other operations are required, use
But example itselfs update multiple fields using the fields param instead of update.
Here's and endpoint example: https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/rest/v3/api-group-issues/#api-rest-api-3-issue-post
Many thanks in advance.
