Create Managed Metadata column in a list using REST API

Copper Contributor

I am able to create columns in a list using the HTTP Request in Flow:


  '__metadata': { 'type': 'SP.FieldText' },
  'FieldTypeKind': 20,
  'Title': 'Role'


However, does anyone know which FieldTypeKind value to use or other terms to use for adding a Metadata column to a list using the REST API?

I am not sure if it is possible to create a managed metadata column using SharePoint REST API. I didn't find any FieldTypeKind for managed metadata columns in Microsoft documentation - FieldType enumeration 


Also, you might want to check below Microsoft documentation which covers column/field related SharePoint REST API examples:
