Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) now allows customers to add a short description to individual security group rules. Using this functionality, customers can add details like when and why a certain security group rule was created or updated. This functionality simplifies management of security groups as customers no longer need to maintain this information outside of Amazon Web Services using spreadsheets or documents.

This capability is available in all Amazon Web Services regions, including the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region operated by Sinnet. 

For more information about security group rules, visit the security group rules page.
