Automated Bids on Keyword Level

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

So I have a campaign that is set up on ECPC bid strategy at the campaign level. I've identified a select number of keywords within this campaign that I'd like to test out the Target Outranking Bid strategy on. When I try to set those bids, I get the following error "o use this bid strategy, change the strategy currently applied to your campaign". 

Is that because I already have an automated strategy at the campaign level? In order to set the Target Outranking bid strategy at a keyword level, would I have to change the campaign level bid strategy to manual bidding?
