Bug Description

openstack server create --security-group foo_security_group ...

failed with the following error:

"Unable to find security_group with name or id 'foo_security_group' (HTTP 400) (Request-ID: req-e6a330b5-dcf3-4794-9884-eba235a51b7b"

Using the security ID instead of name works fine.

Doesn't appear we are doing any name to ID dance here.

I can't reproduce this issue, specifying security group name to boot server works for me in my local devstack, according to the nova API[1] and latest novaclient[2], security group name is supported, but security group uuid is not present, I think we should support to create server with security group name or uuid in openstackclient, we can do some conversion in osc and pass name to novaclient.

    Create server with security group ID and name

    Both resource ID and name are supported to identify an object
    in openstackclient to make user easy to input, for security group,
    nova only support security group name in API when launch a new server,
    this patch convert ID to name, then pass name to nova API, and check
    the security group exist before creating server.
