In this recipe, you configure Automation stitches for your Fortinet Security Fabric. Each Automation pairs an event trigger and one or more actions, which allows you to monitor your network and take appropriate action when the Security Fabric detects a threat. You can use Automation stitches to detect events from any source in the Security Fabric and apply actions to any destination.
In this example, you create the following Automation stitches:
- Ban a compromised host’s IP address.
- Send an email alert when HA failover occurs.
In this example, the Security Fabric consists of Edge, an HA cluster that is the root FortiGate of the Security Fabric, and three ISFW FortiGate devices (Accounting, Marketing, and Sales). You configure the Automation stitches on the root FortiGate and the settings are synchronized with the other FortiGate devices in the Security Fabric.
