Dear Stackers,

I just installed icehouse and i found that i can use horizon to create duplicated name of security groups, this can be confusing when you add rules into security group, choosing remote as "security group" there will be duplicated name in security group dropdown list.

Could this be a potential bug for Horizon?

Looking at the horizon code it seems that most operations are based on the actual security group ID. However there are also actions that allow the usage of the name (example being the neutron client allowing deletion by name). As long as you are aware of this, everything may work out as expected.

Horizon may force users to use unique names for security groups but this is not related to Horizon. The networking component allows same name security groups.

This is worth looking into, but at a first glance everything seems in order.
