I have icehouse on CentOS6.5 installed via packstack

I want to create a customised Security Group for a tenant during tenant creation. It seems that a default group with 4 rule is created when a tenant is created.

I can edit the default group or create a customised group with rules for the tenant. Can I configure specific rules during tenant creation?

This is not possible from the python-keystoneclient command line tool. This can be inconvenient, but the idea is to keep each bit of functionality small and make it only do one thing (e.g. create a tenant, modify a security group's rules).

Ok. Can I delete the rules in the default Security Group and create new rules per tenant? The issue that I'm having is that I can't associate the default groups in the list with tenants,

I suppose I can query MySQL and do it that way. Just want to automate it in a script.

You mentioned "modify a security group's rules". Can this be done immediately after tenant creation and prior to accessing tenant in dashboard? It seems that the Security Group doesn't exist in DB until I access tenant in dashboard.

Not sure what the best way to do this would be. Best bet would be to look at the Keystone source code to see what it does when creating a tenant or user. You can probably locate its construction of the default security group somewhere in this process.
