Do I need to use FortiGate with FortiAP Cloud?
No. Fortinet recommends you register your FortiAP devices to be directly managed by FortiAP Cloud. You do not need to use a FortiGate device as a proxy to manage FortiAP devices from FortiAP Cloud.
If you want to cloud-manage FortiAP devices in an environment that includes FortiGate, then use FortiGate Cloud instead of FortiAP Cloud.
