Security Fabric authorization information for FortiOS

When using FortiOS to create a Security Fabric connection to FortiAnalyzer, the process includes device authorization. The authorization process uses a browser popup window that requires communication to FortiAnalyzer. Depending on the topology, communication might fail, unless you specify the accessible management IP address and/or port of FortiAnalyzer that the browser popup window in FortiOS can use to connect with FortiAnalyzer.

FortiOS retrieves this information from FortiAnalyzer and makes it available to the browser popup window used for the authorization process.

To specify the authorization address and/or port:
  1. In FortiAnalyzer, go to System Settings > Admin > Admin Settings.
  2. Under Fabric Authorization, set the following options: 
    Authorization Address Type the GUI-accessible URL for FortiAnalyzer.
    Authorization Port If a non-default port is used, type the port number used for GUI access to FortiAnalyzer.
  3. Click Apply.
