Security Groups disabled?

Hi stackers,

I'm testing the dashboard features, and I can't manage the Security Groups. Reviewing the code it seems there is code to manage them in the repository:


but it's not in use currently.

I was thinking about enabling it again, but I don't know if there is a good reason to keep this functionality disabled that I don't know.

If it's reasonable to enable it again, I would love to hear some hints about the steps to follow to enable it again.

Thanks in advance! Diego

Hi Diego,

We are in the middle of transitioning dashboard away from the EC2 API to the OpenStack API. Currently the OpenStack API has no support for security groups so for the time being we are going to leave the security group code disabled until the OpenStack API has feature parity with the EC2 API. It's not ideal but at the moment we don't have much of a choice.
