Automating ticket creation for projects that require a component?

I would like to fully automate ticket creation for a program I am running within my organization. I am using the JIRA api to do this, but I'm running into problems with projects that require a component. It seems there is no way way to choose a default component or override the component requirement via api, so my program fails to create tickets for these projects. This is currently a blocker for the program, since it requires full automation. Any thought on how to work around this?

Use a component named "Needs Triage" is one way.

Or name the component "Created automatically"

Components are generally used for auto assigning issues to the right person. But there isn't a way to specify one component as the default.

You can use the createMeta endpoint to discover what fields are required. (Developer article: 

You can use the getProjectComponents endpoint to discover what options there are in a specific project. (API article:
