AWS::EC2::SecurityGroup Egress

Specifies an outbound rule for a security group. An outbound rule permits instances to send traffic to the specified IPv4 or IPv6 CIDR address ranges, or to the instances associated with the specified destination security groups.

You must specify only one of the following properties: CidrIp, CidrIpv6, DestinationPrefixListId, or DestinationSecurityGroupId.

The EC2 Security Group Rule is an embedded property of the AWS::EC2::SecurityGroup type.

Syntax

To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:

JSON

{ "CidrIp" : String, "CidrIpv6" : String, "Description" : String, "DestinationPrefixListId" : String, "DestinationSecurityGroupId" : String, "FromPort" : Integer, "IpProtocol" : String, "ToPort" : Integer }

YAML

CidrIp: String CidrIpv6: String Description: String DestinationPrefixListId: String DestinationSecurityGroupId: String FromPort: Integer IpProtocol: String ToPort: Integer

Properties

CidrIp

The IPv4 address range, in CIDR format.

Required: No

Type: String

Update requires: No interruption

CidrIpv6

[EC2-VPC only] The IPv6 ranges.

The IPv6 address range, in CIDR format.

Required: No

Type: String

The IP protocol name (tcp, udp, icmp, icmpv6) or number (see Protocol Numbers).

[VPC only] Use -1 to specify all protocols. When authorizing security group rules, specifying -1 or a protocol number other than tcp, udp, icmp, or icmpv6 allows traffic on all ports, regardless of any port range you specify. For tcp, udp, and icmp, you must specify a port range. For icmpv6, the port range is optional; if you omit the port range, traffic for all types and codes is allowed.

Required: Yes

Type: String
