EMS Connector

EMS connector on FortiAnalyzer allows automation playbooks to reach out to endpoints and collect information or take containment actions.

To configure an EMS connector for use in FortiSoC playbooks:

  2. Register FortiClient to the EMS server. In the example below, two FortiClients have been registered.
  3. In FortiClient EMS System Settings, configure FortiClient EMS to send logs to FortiAnalyzer.
     
  4. In FortiAnalyzer, register the EMS device to a Fabric ADOM.
  5. In the Fabric ADOM, go to Fabric View > Fabric Connectors. Click Create New, and select FortiClient EMS.

    Configure the EMS connector, and click OK.
  6. Go to FortiSoC > Automation > Connectors. Here you can view the actions FortiAnalyzer can take on endpoints using the EMS connector.
