To create a new security group (or groups) to use with servers in deployments.
Table of Contents
Adding and editing security groups requires the "security_manager" role. See User Role Privileges.
Note: The "security_manager" role also enables you to run Infrastructure Audit reports (which include security group audit trail information).
Security groups are essentially firewalls for servers in the cloud. They define which ports are open to allow incoming connections to a server via specific protocols. Security groups only affect ingress (incoming) communications and do not prevent a server from initiating outbound communications.
Each server must have at least one security group assigned. By default, a new security group set up with no associated rules will deny all access to its associated servers. You must add rules in order to allow inbound traffic to the servers.
Security groups give you a flexible way to restrict server access, allowing you to set restrictions specific to particular protocols, ports, IP addresses, or combinations of these. Permissions defined in a security group are additive in nature; so, if a server has two security groups where one group has port 80 open and the other group has port 80 closed, port 80 will be open (not closed) on the server.
All firewall permissions apply to ingress communication. Create a rule for a specific port or range of ports. Create additional rules as necessary.
Use the "Add Group" feature to add security groups to other security groups or to add a security group to itself. This feature grants group-wide access permissions that apply to all servers in the added group. See Add a Security Group to another Security Group or Add a Security Group to Itself.
When experiencing communications issues with servers in a deployment, you may need to troubleshoot your security group settings. The following is a list of common issues often associated with the setup and configuration of security groups.
