    Looking through the API Documentation, I can't see a way to create custom fields for a list ... there only seems to be an endpoint to get a list of the fields.

    Is there a createFields endpoint available?

    @rtmsolutions - custom fields are super complicated to give the ability to be created from api, you have to do it from the web interface.

    OK, if it's not possible to this via the API, then I can create a workaround by making a "master list" containing the custom fields that I require ... and instead of using the API to "create" a list, I'll just use the API to "copy" the empty "master list" to create a new list ... that way I'll get a new list contain all the custom fields that I need.
