Comment (by teamcoltra):

 Replying to [comment:1 rmccue]:
 > This should be clearer in the documentation, but
 changes-in-4-6/ meta needs to be registered] with `show_in_rest => true`
 set in the
 `register_meta` call]. Seems that we need an additional page in the REST
 API handbook for this (which I thought we had, but turns out we don't).

 This fixed it. I would also ''suggest'' a feature request to allow a
 checkbox or something to just default allow this for all metadata or to
 allow custom fields to be granted this in the GUI instead of creating a
 custom plugin for it. That said, that's down the line.

 This should be updated in the documentation though. Thanks for your help.
