Permissions for edit not working in Workflow steps


In my permission scheme  Administrators and Developer roles have permission to edit.  

On the transition to Done status I have a pre-condition that only Product Owner Role can transition to Done

In my workflow properties I had = jira administrators = Product Owners

When I removed the second group Product Owners, users could not transition to "Done" and there was a blank message at the top of the screen.

If I add back in = Product Owners users (Product Owners can transition to done) however they can also edit the issue.  We only want role Administrators or group jira-administrators to be able to edit an issue in the "Done" state.

I don't know why Product Owners can't transition to Done without = Product Owner Role

How can I edit locked down to just administrators, without impacting the ability to transition to done?

Can you share your permission scheme?

I wish I could but I work in a closed Area so it is not possible for me to share my permission scheme. 

But we have groups and you have to be a member of a group and the members of that group have certain roles that are used for setting permissions.
