Modifies the description of an inbound rule of a security group. You can call this operation to modify only the description of an inbound security group rule. If you want to modify other information such as the policy, port range, and authorization objects of the rule, log on to the Elastic Compute Service (ECS) console.

Description

In the security group-related API documents, inbound traffic refers to the traffic that is sent from the source device and received at the destination device.

You can determine an inbound security group 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 specify an inbound security group rule that controls access to a specified CIDR block: IpProtocol, PortRange, SourcePortRange (optional), NicType, Policy, DestCidrIp (optional), and SourceCidrIp.
