I want to increase my security group rule quota in my Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).

Short description

By default, the number of Amazon VPCs in an AWS Region is five and the number of security groups per Amazon VPC is 500. The number of Amazon VPCs in a Region multiplied by the number of security groups per Amazon VPC can't exceed 5000. Also, the security groups per network interface quota multiplied by the rules per security group quota can't exceed 1000.

Resolution

To increase your security group rule quota, see Security groups. For more information on how to modify resources or increase quotas, see Amazon VPC quotas.

Note: If you request a quota increase that applies per resource, then AWS increases the quota for all resources the Region. There's no additional charge to use security groups.
