Adds one or more ingress rules to a security group.

Rule changes are propagated to instances within the security group as quickly as possible. However, a small delay might occur.

[EC2-Classic] This action gives one or more IPv4 CIDR address ranges permission to access a security group in your account, or gives one or more security groups (called the source groups) permission to access a security group for your account. A source group can be for your own AWS account, or another. You can have up to 100 rules per group.

[EC2-VPC] This action gives one or more IPv4 or IPv6 CIDR address ranges permission to access a security group in your VPC, or gives one or more other security groups (called the source groups) permission to access a security group for your VPC. The security groups must all be for the same VPC or a peer VPC in a VPC peering connection. For more information about VPC security group limits, see Amazon VPC Limits.

You can optionally specify a description for the security group rule.

For PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to AuthorizeSecurityGroupIngressAsync.
