Administration Guide

Device Manager

Use the Device Manager pane to add, configure, and manage devices and VDOMs.

After you add and authorize a device or VDOM, the FortiAnalyzer unit starts collecting logs from that device or VDOM. You can configure the FortiAnalyzer unit to forward logs to another device. See Log Forwarding.

The Device Manager pane includes an interactive map displaying the physical locations of authorized devices. You can enable and disable the map using the Show Map toggle in the toolbar.

You can navigate the map by using your mouse and zoom in or out with the scroll wheel or the corresponding Zoom in and Zoom out buttons on the map. When zoomed in, only the devices that are currently visible on the map are displayed in the device list below. Click Show All to zoom out to display all authorized devices on the map and device list.
