Bug Description

Creating this from

In nova-network security group names can't be duplicated, but in neutron, they can. For this reason, it would be nice to return server security groups as ids instead of names.

Here's is a sample request and response showing the current state: "security_groups": [{"name": "default"}],

This wishlist bug has been open a year without any activity. I'm going
to move it to "Opinion / Wishlist", which is an easily-obtainable queue
of older requests that have come on. If you decide to work on this
consider using a blueprint [1] (maybe with a spec [2]). I'll recommend to
read [3] if not yet done.
