You can create an entry with an entry name no longer than 15 characters (saying extender1 as below), and the enter its serial number for "id". The extension-type will be auto-filled based on the attribute "id". For the FortiExtender 200F model without LTE/5G, the default is lan-extension; for models with LTE/5G, the default is wan-extension. You can change the extension-type as you want. Note that for FortiExtender 200F, it has only lan-extension. You can then select a profile that you have created before. If you have not created a profile before, type "end" and a default profile will be auto-geberated.

For details of the default extender profile, you can refer to the section of "Default FortiExtender profile".
