I want to create a User Defined Security Group in Acronis Cloud Security. How do I do that?


Security groups are designed to simplify the administration of VM security settings by applying the settings to VMs with a common security criteria. Acronis Cloud Security allows creation of multiple security groups in addition to the All VMs default group. The All VMs default group rules apply to all VMs with enabled virtual firewall. Rules in other security groups apply to member VMs only. Each VM can be a member of several security groups. 


Setting up security group membership can be done either in the VM settings (Please refer to How do I configure Virtual Machine Settings in my Acronis Cloud Security product?) or directly from the Members tab.

To edit security group membership, select the security group from the object tree, and then click on the Edit Members button on the Members tab.
In the Edit Members list window, select the VMs to include them in the security group or deselect the VMs to remove them from it:

Note: You can also use the edit security group membership process to remove deleted VMs from the security group (deleted VMs will be displayed under Unknown branch in the object tree).

Security groups are also available for tenant users who can create their own groups that can be applied within a tenant and can only be changed by that tenant or by the global administrators only.

To create a new security group, select Rules>Add Global Rules Group menu item or right click on the Global entity and then click Add Group.

Enter the name for the new security group in the dialog box (New VM Group is the default group name) and the description (optional). Click OK

The new security group is created and appears in the object tree.

To edit the global rules group, select the group in the object tree and select Rules>Edit Global Rules Group menu item, Edit Group from the main panel button, or right click on the group and then click Edit:

Enter the new name and/or description in the same dialog box, and then click OK.

To delete global rules group, select global rules group in the object tree. Then select Rules> Delete Global Rules Group or right click on the group and then click Delete
