How do I overrideScreenSecurity when setting a field value (Cloud)?

When I try to update a field via the issueInput binding what does not exist on any of my screens (by design), i get the following error.  How do i overrideScreenSecurity so that "hidden" fields can be set?

I'm using ScriptRunner for JIRA Cloud.

Hi Randy,

This is a deficiency with the Modify Issue post function we hope to have addressed shortly. To work around it use the Run Script function and use the overrideScreenSecurity query param. For example:

def resp = Unirest.put("/rest/api/2/issue/${issue.key}")
        .queryString("overrideScreenSecurity", true)
        .header("Content-Type", "application/json")



Thanks Jon!

I tried the override setting but still getting the same error.
