revoke-security-group-ingress

Note

To specify multiple rules in a single command use the --ip-permissions option

Description

Removes the specified ingress rules from a security group. To remove a rule, the values that you specify (for example, ports) must match the existing rule's values exactly.

Note

[EC2-Classic , default VPC] If the values you specify do not match the existing rule's values, no error is returned, and the output describes the security group rules that were not revoked.

AWS recommends that you use DescribeSecurityGroups to verify that the rule has been removed.

Each rule consists of the protocol and the CIDR range or source security group. For the TCP and UDP protocols, you must also specify the destination port or range of ports. For the ICMP protocol, you must also specify the ICMP type and code. If the security group rule has a description, you do not have to specify the description to revoke the rule.

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

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Options

--group-id (string)

The ID of the security group. You must specify either the security group ID or the security group name in the request. For security groups in a nondefault VPC, you must specify the security group ID.

--group-name (string)

[EC2-Classic, default VPC] The name of the security group. You must specify either the security group ID or the security group name in the request.

--ip-permissions (list)

--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--protocol (string)

The IP protocol: tcp | udp | icmp

(VPC only) Use all to specify all protocols.

If this argument is provided without also providing the port argument, then it will be applied to all ports for the specified protocol.

--port (string)

For TCP or UDP: The range of ports to allow. A single integer or a range (min-max ).

For ICMP: A single integer or a range (type-code ) representing the ICMP type number and the ICMP code number respectively. A value of -1 indicates all ICMP codes for all ICMP types. A value of -1 just for type indicates all ICMP codes for the specified ICMP type.

--cidr (string)

The CIDR IP range.

--source-group (string)

The name or ID of the source security group.

--group-owner (string)

The AWS account ID that owns the source security group. Cannot be used when specifying a CIDR IP address.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

Example 1: To remove a rule from a security group

The following revoke-security-group-ingress example removes TCP port 22 access for the 203.0.113.0/24 address range from the specified security group for a default VPC.

aws ec2 revoke-security-group-ingress \
    --group-name mySecurityGroup
    --protocol tcp \
    --port 22 \
    --cidr 203.0.113.0/24

This command produces no output if it succeeds.

For more information, see Security groups in the Amazon EC2 User Guide.

Example 2: To remove a rule using the IP permissions set

The following revoke-security-group-ingress example uses the ip-permissions parameter to remove an inbound rule that allows the ICMP message Destination Unreachable: Fragmentation Needed and Don't Fragment was Set (Type 3, Code 4).

aws ec2 revoke-security-group-ingress \
    --group-id sg-026c12253ce15eff7 \
    --ip-permissions IpProtocol=icmp,FromPort=3,ToPort=4,IpRanges=[{CidrIp=0.0.0.0/0}]

This command produces no output if it succeeds.

For more information, see Security groups in the Amazon EC2 User Guide.
