In Jira Cloud, is there a way to set the issue types for a specific project with REST?

I am trying to setup a project template or using REST give my users a function to create their projects with a bunch of configuration setup for them. 

I cannot seem to find any way to set the issue type scheme or to set the issue types for a new project.

Take a look at createmeta 

https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/cloud/#api/2/issue-getCreateIssueMeta

Returns a list of projects and the issue types that are associated with them. 

Based on that information, filter out what is required (i.e. show only issue types for project X) 

Hi Charles. This is helpful but if a project does not support issue types we need, is there a way to add them to the project via REST?

I don't believe updating a project's issue type is currently supported. Refer to this open ticket https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-59948

This will need to be done manually via the Administration UI.

One thing I can suggest is to just associate all the available issue types to this project. That way you're able to create the issues via REST without any problems.
