I got the same message, but the field did not show. It seems the message is wrong or misleading, as it had nothing to do with edit permissions.
The field was simply empty for the issue, so it didn't show, although it was on the right screen.
Unfortunately, in JIRA 7.3+ the "Where's my field?" seems to be missing, so there is no way to really find out why a field is not showing.
