Elastic Compute Service:Modify the name, description, and tags of a security group

Last Updated:Feb 01, 2024

After you create a security group, you can modify the name, description, and tags of the security group based on your business requirements.

Prerequisites

A security group is created. For more information, see Create a security group.

Modify the name and description of a security group

Perform the following steps to modify the name and description of a security group:

  1. Log on to the ECS console.

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Network & Security > Security Groups.

  3. In the top navigation bar, select the region and resource group to which the resource belongs. 地域

  4. On the Security Groups page, find the security group that you want to modify, move the pointer over the name in the Security Group ID/Name column or the description in the Description column, and then click the Edit icon.

  5. In the dialog box that appears, modify the name or description of the security group.

  6. Click Confirm.

Modify the tags of a security group

Tags can be used to identify resources with the same characteristics for easy search and management, such as security groups that belong to the same organization or that serve the same purpose. For information about tags, see Overview.

  1. Log on to the ECS console.

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Network & Security > Security Groups.

  3. In the top navigation bar, select the region and resource group to which the resource belongs. 地域

  4. Find the security group whose tags you want to modify, move the pointer over the edit-tag icon in the Tag column, and then click Edit.

  5. In the Configure Tags dialog box, select existing tags or specify new tags, and then click OK.

    After tags are added to your security groups, you can filter the security groups by tag to perform different operations. For example, you can add Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instances to security groups that have a set of tags and add rules to security groups that have a different set of tags.
