Changing security group settings is now safer and easier.
Previously, you could assign security groups to instances (VMs) through the OpenStack Management Console, but this is no longer possible.
You can grant security groups using the online submission system (hss-desk).

Before the change
Security groups can be granted to VMs using the "Edit Security Groups" operation in the OpenStack Management Console.

After the change
Grant security groups to VMs by "Edit Security Groups" operation from "Resource Management" of the hss-desk.

No change

With this change, the storage network security group no longer changes, and users only need to work with the project network security group.
Additionally, hss-desk can now list the security groups configured on a VM.

In line with the above, the "SailingShip Users Guide" and "Online Submission System Users Guide" have been updated, so please check them as well.

Each user guide can be downloaded from below.
