Deployment templates

Deploying FortiGate Autoscale for AWS requires the use of deployment templates. There are two types of templates:

  • Entry template. This template could run as the entry point of a deployment.
  • Dependency template. This template is automatically run by the deployment process as a Nested Stack. It cannot be run as an entry template. A dependency template is run based on user selected options.

Following are descriptions of the templates included in the FortiGate Autoscale for AWS deployment package.
