How to get hidden custom fields using Rest API

We have created a global field for all issue type and associated different default values for different projects and we intentionally did not added this field to any screen, so it can not be edited by any user but we can still differentiate entities/workitems based on value of this field.

Now since the field is not associated with any screen so it is not returned from API when we use blow queries
- /rest/api/2/issue/createmeta
- /rest/api/2/issue/editmeta

we observed there is another query which returns all fields and also includes the global hidden field and that is
- /rest/api/2/field

now here the problem is the response of above /field query does not include information like which field belongs to which project/screen/schema etc., so please let us know if there is a way to get such information from /field URL by passing some request parameter/flag in request.

also please let us know if there is some other way to get project level hidden fields using some other rest request.
