Issue level security - unsuccessful


I have my requirement like this:

User can create an issue and there will be a multi-group field "MyGroups" to be populated while creating. Only the populated groups can access the issue.

Here are my steps to achieve this:

1. Created "issue security scheme" with a single security level "test" by adding this multi-group customfield(MyGroups).

2. Added this security scheme to "MyProject" and enabled "set Issue security" for jira-users in this project permissions.

When I create an issue by adding a group(jira-administrators) into MyGroups, still the issue is accessible outside users of the given group(jira-administrators).

Am I missing anything here in my configuration?

Please help me. Thanks in advance!

From what I read I would say there is no security level set on the issue.

When you create the issue, do you set the security level for this issue to "test" by default?

Do you have the permission to set the security level?

Maybe you are looking to do the step than Rambanam says automagically - if so consider using

Setting "test" security level as default solves my problem. Thanks!

I have only one security level and it should be applied to all the issues. So I don't want user(who has perms) to modify the security level manually. I tried hiding "security level" field in my field configuration scheme then it is not working as expected. As I set test as my default security level, the issue should have value test in security level field though it is not show on create/edit issue right? am I missing anything here?
