Deleting a customfield option

I have a REST API module working with customfield options. When calling the API, I want to delete the option when it is not used (== used in 0 issues) and disable if it is used in at least one issue. How can I determine whether the option is selected in at least one issue?

I use the following code to get the options:

List<FieldConfigScheme> schemes = customField.getConfigurationSchemes();
if (schemes != null && !schemes.isEmpty()) {
      FieldConfigScheme sc = schemes.get(0);
      Map configs = sc.getConfigsByConfig();
      if (configs != null && !configs.isEmpty()) {
        FieldConfig config = (FieldConfig) configs.keySet().iterator().next();
        Options options = optionsManager.getOptions(config);

Iterated through all the issues manually.

I think you have to search for all issues with this option selected through a JQL search.
