Problem with overrideScreenSecurity

I want to create a custom field in my Jira Project for all issues. But at the same time I do not want that property to be shown on screen to the users. Now I am able to succesfully create a new custom field, but problem occurs when I try to set it's value. Because that custom field is not shown on the screen, thus I am setting 'overrideScreenSecurity' parameter to true (as given in Edit Issue API). But I am getting following response : 

{
  "errorMessages": [
    "Only Connect add-on users with admin scope permission are allowed to override screen security."
  ],
  "errors": {}
}

Despite I am the admin of the project. Can anyone please help me in figuring out the problem.

P.S. : All of above work has to be done using JIRA API only, no GUI.

 

Thanks

Your user has to be a JIRA administrator to be able to bypass the security.

But as I mentioned, I am the Admin

You said are the project administrator.  That's not enough, you need to be the JIRA admin to bypass security.

How do I become JIRA admin then ??

Get an admin to add you to one of the groups that grant administrator rights.

I have the exact same issue and my user has admin and site-admin permissions.  @Abhishek Bansal, were you able to resolve this issue?
