Add Custom Fields on Install

Hi there,

I'm currently developing a JIRA plugin that makes use of custom fields and would like these custom fields to be created when the plugin is installed. How would I go about doing this? I've looked around and can only find information on defining custom field types, when what I need are custom fields.


Any help would be appreciated.
