How do I use AWS security group tags to inbound rules?

We use IPs to allow external access to our EC2 RDS server.   We add them to the Inbound rules for the security group of the RDS instance as shown here:
AWS security group inbound rules
We see that it is possible to create a "tag" as shown here:
AWS security group tags
Is there a way we could add a column in the first image to display the tag = a name for the IP?  Any other process you can think of short of writing it down on a piece of paper somewhere?

To add colums to the first image showing the available tags you have created you need to click on the image that is similar to a cog:

Add a new field
From here you can selecte/deselect the tags you have from your 2nd image above.  Once you have done this the values will then appear in your 1st image above.

Tag values can only contain 255 characters, so it depends on how many IP addresses you want it to list will depend on how many different tags you create.  Bear in mind however you can only create 10 tags per resource.

Thank you.  The tags do not appear on the top table of the first image, but how do I make a new column in the second table, i.e. in the list of Inbound rules?

Hi,

Sorry, I'm a little bit confused as to what you need here.  Do you need to add an entry into the "Tags" page? Or are you asking if you can add another "Tab" to the existing list of "Description" "Inbound" "Outbound" "Tags" ?

Cheers,

Sorry for the confusion.  Here's a screenshot of what I was hoping to do:

Hi,

Ok I understand and see what you mean now. Unfortunately I don't believe this is currently possibly to do.  The security groups inbound tab is not customisable to incorporate the Tags section within in.  

I do admit this would be a useful function though.

Cheers,
