jira cli Invalid action specified: ADDCUSTOMFIELD

Hi there,

I have a problem creating custom field with JIRA cli.

This is command similar to examples at https://bobswift.atlassian.net/wiki/display/JCLI/Examples:

java -jar jira-cli-3.9.0.jar --server http://localhost:2990/jira --user admin --password admin --action addCustomField --field "zzz_Number Field" --type "com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.customfieldtypes:float" --continue --search "com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.customfieldtypes:exactnumber"

As you probably noticed, action addCustomField was not available in jira-cli-3.9.0.jar. So I used latest one jira-cli-4.5.0.jar and created custom fields with no problem.
