FortiAnalyzer Connector

When you create a connector for FortiAnalyzer, you are specifying how FortiADC can communicate with FortiAnalyzer for pushing logs to FortiAnalyzer.

FortiADC will connect to FortiAnalyzer by UDP, TCP or TCP SSL depending on the FortiAnalyzer connector setting.

Requirements:

  • The FortiAnalyzer service is required to be exposed on External IP.

To create a FortiAnalyzer Connector:

  1. Go to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors.
  2. Click Create New.
  3. Under Private SDN, select FortiAnalyzer. The FortiAnalyzer screen is displayed.
  4. Configure the following options, and then click Save.
    Status
