If I want to integrate custom fields into my Joomla 4 extension, then I have to change the database so that a link appears in the administrator menu, right?

For example like here: https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/blob/c6332d48dab0fce0d4903f206dc979e2c2c59a12/installation/sql/mysql/base.sql#L471

So far I've been using a sidebar for managing the custom fields - like in Joomla 3.

Actually, I don't like changing joomla database tables. Having your own sidebar isn't nice in Joomla 4 either.

What is best practice for inserting the link for editing custom fields?
