How do you change the name and description of a security group in AWS EC2?
My security group is named
quick-start-1 (the default) and I want to change it to "
HTTP, HTTPS and Limited SSH".
It's not possible to rename a security group, by GUI or by API.
It's also not possible to change the security group that is assigned to an EC2 instance.
If you must change the security group for an EC2 instance, then you need to:
You're not the first to want this, and you're not the first to be disappointed.
Also, you cant change security group memberships for an instance once launched. :-(
I'm 99% sure this cant be done via the web GUI. Maybe via API shenanigans, but if so i've never seen it. I've wanted it myself often enough.
