Can't create firewall alias as non-root user

I use to manage my proxmox with an account which has administrator role but which is not the root user.
When I try to create a new firewall alias, i got an errror message
Permission check failed (user != root@pam) (403)

All other command (create/edit Rules/IPSet/Options/....) work fine.

Do I miss any specific authorization to add or could it be a bug?
Successfully tested on three different servers with PVE and LDAP account.

Thanks for the fix!
