This limit can be increased or decreased upon request, however, the multiple of 'rules per security group' and 'security groups per network interface' cannot exceed 250. For example, if you want 100 rules per security group, we’d need to decrease your number of security groups per network interface to 2.

Security groups per network interface

This limit can be increased or decreased upon request; however, the multiple of ‘security groups per network interface’ and ‘rules per security group’ cannot exceed 250.
