REST API - createmeta request not returning all fields available in Web UI


When I create an issue using JIRA web UI, all the fields are visible. But using REST API, if I try to get the issue metadata(/rest/api/latest/issue/createmeta ) response doesn't include all the fields available in the UI. (eg. fields such as Summary, Environment doesn't get shown up in the createmeta response. ) 

 Although, the server accepts the fields when the issue is created using REST resource (/rest/api/latest/issue)

I suppose all the fields available in UI should appear in the REST createmeta response?

I am using JIRA 7.1 on Cloud 

Could anyone help me out on the issue?

Those are system fields, and not accessed the same way as custom fields.  Have a look at the "set" functions in the REST API for them.
