Unable to create group with the rest api function when using "administrator" personal access token

Currently I am writing a script to test the Rest API functions of BitBucket. Using the administrator personal access token, I was able to use most of the Rest API functions, such as creating projects, repository. The administrator account also has "system admin" set in the global permission.

However, when I try to use the create group API function (http://hostname:7990/rest/api/1.0/admin/groups?name=testcreategroup) , it will result in error code : 401.

[context: null,
message: You are not permitted to access this resource, exceptionName:com.atlassian.bitbucket.AuthorisationException]


When I test using curl in the command line, using the administrator token will result in the same error. However if I use username and password instead (-u admin:password), the command will be successfully executed and the group created. 

Would like to clarify if this is an issue/bug, or is this an expected behavior from using personal access token for group creation? or am I actually missing out some permission setting for the administrator account/token? 

Thanks in advance.
