Hi@akhtar,

If you attempt to delete a security group that is associated with an instance, or is referenced by another security group, the operation fails with InvalidGroup.InUse in EC2-Classic or DependencyViolation in EC2-VPC. So you can delete the security group if it is not in use.

import boto3
from botocore.exceptions import ClientError
ec2 = boto3.client('ec2')
try:
    response = ec2.delete_security_group(GroupId='SECURITY_GROUP_ID')
    print('Security Group Deleted')
except ClientError as e:
    print(e)
