Creating draft edits programmatically with the Sanity client for JavaScript

Hi All!
Is there a way to create a draft edit programatically with the sanity client for javascript. Create or replace works in creating a draft update but this then triggers the create event for a webhook.

I want to use patch to trigger the edit event for my webhook but I don't seem to be able to make patch create a draft update.

A draft is just a document with an ID starting with
, so you could make your patch set your ID as a draft?

Ah it looks like I can't use this as a workaround as I get this error using patch:

immutable attribute \"_id\" may not be modified

I didn't find anything for a work around so I just used post to create a new doc with the same draft ID which overwrites the original.
