You can call this operation to modify the description of outbound rules of a security group. You can modify only the description by calling this operation. If you need to modify the policies, port ranges, and authorized objects of security group rules, log on to the ECS console.

Description

You can determine an outbound rule by specifying one of the following groups of parameters. You cannot determine a security group rule by specifying only one parameter.

  • Parameters used to grant access permissions to specified CIDR blocks: IpProtocol, PortRange, SourcePortRange (optional), NicType, Policy, DestCiderIp, and SourceCidrIp (optional).
  • Parameters used to grant access permissions to other security groups: IpProtocol, PortRange, SourcePortRange (optional), NicType, Policy, DestCiderIp (optional), DestGroupOwnerAccount, and DestGroupId.

Debugging

OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer. OpenAPI Explorer dynamically generates the sample code of the operation for different SDKs.
