Allow network security groups to be created and renamed
Currently, it seems I can't create security groups without creating an instance, or rename them for that matter. Or can I?
My use case: I created an instance and and 'SSH' security group with it. Then decided I want to test HTTP as well via public IP. Oh well, I can't rename the SSH group to e.g. 'SSH+HTTP', nor can I create a new group to change the NIC to.
This remains on our long-term backlog as something we want to offer
I emphatically agree with the poster and all previous commenters. Being able to rename the rules themselves would ALSO be most helpful - I'm halfway through a network segmentation project, and the scope just changed from "apply the rules to the subnets" to "apply the rules to the individual VMs." Now, sure, I can simply take the same NSG and apply it to the NICs of the individual VMs... but my original naming convention included frequent use of the word "Subnet" in my rule infrastructure. I really would prefer not to have to recreate all of my rules with altered names.
Renaming resources is like refactoring code, it really would be helpful.

If renaming is hard, being able to create a copy of the existing group via GUI would help also.
Pretty basic functionality to be missing tbh
Can we make it so ANYTHING can be renamed? This is quite cumbersome that the platform does not allow any Resource to be renamed. Perhaps including the Resource Name in the ResourceId was the challenge with allowing renames to occur. And perhaps that can be the solution to implementing it as Resource Id's being dynamically generated do not appear to be a use case, thus allowing the ID's to stay the same even when a Resource is renamed.
I need to rename a Security group in intune. Can someone help?
I need to rename NSG but I can't. Microsoft, please allow us to rename NSG
Yes, this please.

I would like to rename mine. I created a prototype NSG with all of my rules in it, and now that I have it defined, my original name doesn't make as much sense. Would be ideal to rename it instead of creating a new one (and re-adding all the rules) and dropping my old one.
