Custom field values are no longer stored in issue properties since there is now a dedicated REST API for updating values directly. This means it's no longer necessary to define an issue property key for them.

See Jira custom field module for more details.
Classic and next-gen projects in Jira now have new names that are clearer and more descriptive of their corresponding project types:
Next-gen projects will be named team-managed projects. The functionality itself remains the same and will continue to be ideal for independent teams who want to control their own working processes and practices in a self-contained space.
Classic projects will be named company-managed projects. Set up and maintained by Jira admins, company-managed projects will remain the best choice for teams who want to work with other teams across many projects in a standard way, such as sharing a workflow.
