Hidden options for Custom fields via REST API

Using the JIRA REST API, I'm retrieving values for custom fields using:

/rest/api/2/issue/createmeta &expand=projects.issuetypes.fields

For the custom field, the values evolve - we retire some old, add some new, making the old ones hidden.

I can get all allowed values for an issue type using createmeta, but it returns both hidden and visible options, with no way to identify which is which.

Is there a way to determine if a custom field option is hidden? Or is this a "shortcoming" that should be fixed?

thanks.

I think currently it is not possible to get disabled property of an option. The getDisabled method of the Option class is used only on one place and it is the com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.config.item.SettableOptionsConfigItem.getViewHtml(FieldConfig, FieldLayoutItem)

There is now a JIRA feature request for this:
