Import Vendors with CI custom fields

I have looked through the API information for Importing Vendors into the application, and there isn't anything where you would populate the Custom Fields you added to the CI Form. For example, we want to import Vendors and want to know the Vendor Risk Category (for compliance purposes). I have created a Custom Field for "Vendor Risk Category" and assigned it to the Configuration Item Form.

 

A review of the Vendor API page (https://www.samanage.com/api/vendors) does not show anything for custom fields. Likewise, the Configuration Item API page (https://www.samanage.com/api/configuration-items) doesn't allow you to create a VENDOR type CI.

 

Anyone else tried to import Custom Field data with the Vendor module?
