Detailed Description

This handler is used to create a security group in AWS. A security group is for use with instances either in the EC2-Classic platform or in a specific VPC. For more information see the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide and the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud User Guide online.

The Dry Run parameter validates user permissions and inputs. If it is set to true, an error will always be thrown by the handler before completing the handler action. Error response will be 'DryRunOperation' if the account has proper permissions and inputs; 'UnauthorizedOperation' if the account does not have proper permissions.
