Adding a FortiAP platform profile

FortiAP Cloud provides default platform (AP) profiles for each supported model. All APs of a given model can use their default platform profile. However, more profiles can be added, edited, and then assigned to APs, thereby changing their characteristic. For instance, two FAP221E models can have their own platform profiles, one with rogue scanning disabled (using default platform profile) and the other enabled (using a customized platform profile).

Other parameters that you can customize for each AP using its own platform profile include radio band, channel, channel width, and transmit power.

When you perform the Configuring FortiAP settings procedure, you can select the FortiAP platform profile that you added using this procedure.

Procedure steps

  1. In the Menu bar, click Configure.
  2. In the Navigation pane, click Platform Profile.
  3. Near the top-right corner, click Add Platform Profile.
  4. Customize the profile.
  5. To save the profile, click Apply.

    The list of profiles includes the new FortiAP platform profile.
