How to create security group rule with 'ALL' for protocol

Hi everyone,

In our default security group we had a rule which had the protocol set to 'ALL' and the 'remote security group' set as itself, so it was a clean way of allowing all traffic between members of the same security group.

How do I create this rule myself? I have tried using "openstack security group rule create" via CLI, but the syntax just doesnt seem to allow 'ALL' for the protocol. Leaving that parameter out just defaults to 'TCP'.

The API accepts any as the protocol name. This seems to work with the openstack command as well (just tried it on Stein).

*slaps forehead... thanks.

I was going off: (

and the error on the CLI was "Error while executing command: BadRequestException: 400, Security group rule protocol all not supported. Only protocol values [None, 'ah', 'pgm', 'tcp', 'ipv6-encap', 'dccp', 'igmp', 'icmp', 'esp', 'ipv6-icmp', 'vrrp', 'gre', 'sctp', 'rsvp', 'ipv6-route', 'udp', 'ipv6-opts', 'ipv6-nonxt', 'udplite', 'egp', 'icmpv6', 'ipv6-frag', 'ospf'] and integer representations [0 to 255] are supported."

Seems obvious now :)
