Importing assets and folders

When the My Assets view does not contain any folders, you can use a CSV template to create folders and import assets.

Note

All assets being imported to new folders must be already registered on the FortiCloud account. Assets with new serial numbers cannot be registered and imported with this feature. See Registering products for more information on registering new products.

To import folders and assets:
  1. Go to Products > My Assets.
  2. Hover over the settings icon, and click Bulk import folders.The Bulk Import dialog is displayed.

  3. Click Download Template. The CSV file template opens.
  4. Use the template to create your folder structure. The value for YourSerialNumber must contain a valid serial number.

    Note

    A parent folder can have up to two sub-folders.

    In the example below, the import file will create four parent folders (FortiAnalyzer, FortiManager, FortiGate, and my-folder-1), and three sub-folders (VM, VM Pre Pay, and my-folder-3). However, my-folder-1\my-folder-3\my-folder-4, will fail to import because the serial numbers are not valid.

  5. Click Choose file, and navigate to the file on your computer.
  6. Click Import. The folders are created and the assets are imported.
