Authentication failing if used accessgroup is other than Administrator

Hi All... I have a weired issue in one of my http service/activity which is called by a java code from outside pega. I am using java step to authenticate user using below 2 lines of code:

             com.pega.pegarules.pub.context.PRAuthentication auth = pega.getAuthenticationHandle();

             auth.performAuthentication (userid, pwd)

This performAuthentication method authenticates user which has Administrator AccessGroup only, If I clone Administrator Accessgroup and create another access group (lets say ABC AG) then now If I change the access group of user from administrator to ABC access group the this authentication method returns false instead of true. I am using v7.1.5

So my question is why is this method tightly coupled with Administrator access group or am I making some mistake?
