Suggestion: Set documentationLinks via REST API

I want to set Component documentationLinks via API after creating component itself.

I found that I can set documentationLink via plugin, but it’s not automatic.

Can I use REST API for that? If not, could you add this feature, please?

This is very convenient when you use the cli command to execute an API request instead of opening Figma and trying to find the main component to add just one link.

REST API doesn’t allow you to edit files in any way, so no, this isn’t possible.
