Agree. However what do you think a user expects when he/she boots a
vm (no matter providing port_id or just net_id)
and specifies security_groups? I think the expectation should be that
instance will become a member of the specified groups.
Ignoring security_groups parameter in case port is provided (as it is
now) seems completely unfair to me.

One option would be to return a 400 if both port id and security_groups
is supplied.

Coming back to this, we now have a change from Oleg [1] after an initial attempt that was reverted because it would break server creates if you specified a port (because the original change would blow up when the compute API added the 'default' security group to the request').

The new change doesn't add the 'default' security group to the request so if you specify a security group and port on the request, you'll now get a 400 error response.

Does this break API compatibility? It seems this falls under the first bullet here [2], "A change such that a request which was successful before now results in an error response (unless the success reported previously was hiding an existing error condition)". Does that caveat in parenthesis make this OK?

It seems like we've had a lot of talk about warts in the compute v2 API for cases where an operation is successful but didn't yield the expected result, but we can't change them because of API backwards compatibility concerns so I'm hesitant on this.

We also definitely need a Tempest test here, which I'm looking into. I think I can work this into the test_network_basic_ops scenario test.
