How to change CMS custom field slugs

I’ve created a few custom fields in the CMS and then changed their names. The underlying field slug stays the same, which in some cases has caused a bit of confusion.

I made two reference fields recently, one for NEXT, one for PREVIOUS articles in the collection. I then swapped the names over (easier than reworking the layout…) but of course, the underlying slugs remained their original names.

Patching entries through Parabola meant I was setting, Next and previous the wrong way round. Lots of head-scratching ensued…

Is there a way to update the CMS filed slugs that are pulled in when making API calls?
