FortiAuthenticator configuration

To enhance the Microsoft Windows operating system login with the use of a OTP (i.e. the two-factor authentication token), FortiAuthenticator Agent for Microsoft OWA uses the FortiAuthenticator REST API. To use the REST API, a key is required which must be generated before installing the desktop agent software.

Generating an API key requires a working email configuration. Before proceeding, configure and test an email server in System > Messaging > SMTP Servers and set it as active in System > Messaging > Email Services.

To generate an API key:
  1. Log into FortiAuthenticator.
  2. Go to Authentication > User Management > Local Users and click the admin user.
  3. Under User Role, select Web service access.
  4. Click OK.
    An email containing the API Key for that user will be sent.

    The required users should be imported via LDAP and assigned a FortiToken with which to authenticate before proceeding.
