Creation of Content Types vai REST API or GRAPH

Im trying to create content type and assign custom site columns / fields to it via REST API in SharePoint Online. The HTTP action works partially as all new CT are create with PARENT CT item... I dont know how to pass the Parent info in the call... Could you please help with that? The next step is to assign some fields/site columns to created Content Type dont know how to deal with that to... If there is a better way to do it via MS Graph Im more than happy to try it.
Know how to do it with CSOM or PnP PS but would like to achive that with Flow that is why thinking to use REST or GRAPH
Till now I tried to use _api/web/contenttypes and
'__metadata': {'type': 'SP.ContentType'},
'Description': 'TestDesc2',
'Name': 'ContentType New7',
'Group': '_GroupCustom',
'Parent': {'__metadata': { 'type': 'SP.ContentType' },
'Id':{'__metadata': { 'type': 'SP.ContentTypeId' },

You can use PnP templates in Microsoft Flow to provision content types.


This article doesn't describe how to provision content types, but it explains how to work with PnP templates from Microsoft Flow. 


You can find description of content type declaration in the PnP Provisioning Schema.


Note, this is provided as an action in the Plumsail SP connector, which is a part of Plumsail Actions product. It is a paid product.
