Can anyone tell me how to create or update JIRA board (scrum or kanban) using REST api?

I want to create and update JIRA board using REST API. So I am searching for JIRA REST API. But I am not getting any API. Can anyone tell me, by using which POST API I can create and update JIRA board?

As far as I understand you can only create and delete a board by using public Rest Api.

You could use developer tools in your browser to trace all calls to your Jira instance while you are updating a board. In the end you would have all the information. But to me such a solution seems like "crutches" because you will use what you are not supposed to use. But I have to admit that I used such solutions. But it was all on my own risk.

Thank you Alexey.
