Account Setting

You can add and manage users from Account Setting. Account Setting includes different user types, including IAM and FortiGate Cloud account users. Account Setting displays a key icon beside the primary account.

The Account Setting page contains the following columns:

Column

Description

Login ID

Email address that the user uses to log in to the FortiGate Cloud portal. This column also displays the region that each user can access and their role. If multitenancy is activated, this column also displays the subaccounts that the user can access.

User Type

Displays the type of user. User types include the following:

  • IAM: see IAM users.
  • FortiGate Cloud: see FortiGate Cloud users.
  • API: an API user only has the ability to call the FortiGate Cloud API. FortiCare manages API users and their access permissions. API users are subusers of the primary account. See API access.
  • Third Party: user who authenticates using an external identity provider (IdP). Configuring an external IdP requires FortiCare and FortiAuthenticator support.

2-Factor

Enable two-factor authentication for the user. Two-factor authentication is only available for FortiGate Cloud and IAM users. Enabling two-factor authentication by selecting the checkbox in this column is only available for FortiGate Cloud users. For IAM users, you can enable two-factor authentication by selecting Security Credentials from the top-right dropdown list.

User Name

Name of the user associated with the user account. You may want to edit a username to make it easier to identify who is using that account. You can edit the username by clicking the Edit icon in the Action column.

Status

Status of the user account. The status can be one of the following:

  • Active: user who has activated their account.
  • Pending: user to whom an activation email has been sent, but has not activated their account yet.

Action

Edit or delete the user, or remove them from their current region. Available options depend on the role of the user account that you are currently logged in to FortiGate Cloud with.
