Populate content fields from another custom field

I created a car license plate custom field, after filling it in I need to call an api via my custom field plugin, retrieve data, and fill in the content entry’s other fields with that data, so my question is… via/within my custom field index.tsx file how cam I populate the other fields of my content Im currently editing??

Ok I achieved this with Lifecycle hooks, the custom field was not necessary lol
