Administration Guide

Viewing user details

When an administrator configures FortiClient to send logs to FortiAnalyzer or FortiManager, some user details are visible in FortiAnalyzer, FortiManager, and FortiOS. See Sending logs and Windows host events to FortiAnalyzer or FortiManager.

Click the user avatar in the upper left corner of FortiClient to view the following information:

Full name

Displays the endpoint user's name if added by the endpoint user.

Phone

Displays the endpoint user's phone number if added by the endpoint user. See Retrieving user details from cloud applications and Adding your phone number and email address manually.

Email

Displays the endpoint user's email address if added by the endpoint user. See Retrieving user details from cloud applications and Adding your phone number and email address manually.

Get personal info from

Displays the source of the endpoint user's personal information and the last time the information was updated. The options are user-specified, from the OS, and from cloud applications: LinkedIn, Google, and Salesforce. Depending on the EMS configuration, not all options may be available.

You can click User Input to select an image or take a webcam photo to use as the user avatar.

You can provide information to FortiClient from an account for a cloud application, such as a Linkedin, Google, or Salesforce account. After the endpoint user logs into the account, FortiClient attempts to retrieve the following information when available: name, avatar, phone number, and email address. See Retrieving user details from cloud applications.

By default, FortiClient displays user details from the endpoint OS and sends this information to EMS. If you provide details using one of the methods above, FortiClient displays those details and sends that information to EMS instead.
