Security Group support in Advanced Zone is a new feature. The feature is not yet released.

Experts, correct me if I am wrong!

Hi people,

Does anybody know how security groups could be enabled in advanced networking mode ?

Official documentation at

11.7.3. Enabling Security Groups
> In order for security groups to function in a zone, the security

I can see option to choose network offering in basic mode:

But there is not such option in advanced mode:

I can see shared offering with security groups in network offerings:

But when I try to add shared network to zone, there is no option to select network offering
with security groups:

I've figured out that

So are security groups supported in Cloudstack 4.0  or  I am trying to break the brick wall
with my head in vain :) ?
If they are not supported, how could I prevent ip spoofing on the guest VMs within one shared
network segment ?
