You can find command to remove your ingress rule from the security group. You can use the below-given command in your script file.

$ aws ec2 revoke-security-group-ingress --group-name mygroup --protocol tcp --port 22 --cidr

Now to automate the script you can use Cron Job concept and schedule your task every two hours.

Many thanks @MD. I understand this solution. We can use cron job to revoke inbound rule. But how can i remove exact IP address which is allocated before. Because inbound rules have like Port 22 with IP addresses ,, The IP address which is assigned before. So i would like to remove this IP. But how can i judge this IP and how to do remove?please reply me bro

I think you can add a description in every rule. When we create any rule, there is an optional option named description. You can remove this based on this.

Yes bro. I will try this method. Once again, Many thanks.
