How to delete a rule from a Cloud Security Group

Note: This article relates to a product currently in beta testing.

Security rules are IP filters that define networking access to an instance. It is an individual component within a Security Group that defines specific traffic types and their allowed direction (ingress or egress).

By combining multiple rules within a Security Group, a customised virtual firewall is created to effectively control access to instances and enhance their security.

Note: Deleting a rule from a Security Group can lead to unexpected consequences such as loss of access, downtime, etc. Before proceeding, carefully review the impact of deleting the rule.
