FortiSandbox Cloud region selection

In FortiOS, FortiSandbox Cloud services are decoupled from the FortiGate Cloud license. This allows you to specify a FortiSandbox Cloud region and take advantage of FortiSandbox features without a FortiGate Cloud account.

The following topology demonstrates how FortiGate Cloud Logs and FortiSandbox Cloud are separated in FortiOS:

To view the FortiGate Cloud Log and FortiSandbox licenses:
  1. Go to Dashboard > Status.
  2. Look in the FortiGate Cloud widget. This widget displays separate license statuses for Log Retention and FortiSandbox Cloud.

    In the following example, the FortiGate Cloud account is using a free license, and FortiSandbox Cloud is using a paid license:

To obtain a FortiSandbox Cloud license:
  1. Go to System > FortiGuard.
  2. Under License Information > FortiSandbox Cloud, click Activate.
  3. Complete the prompts to obtain your license.

    Note

    The FortiSandbox Cloud license is linked to your antivirus license, so they will expire at the same time.

    • If the FortiGate is not registered with a paid antivirus license, the FortiGate will use the free FortiGate Cloud license. This license limits the FortiGate to 100 FortiSandbox Cloud submissions per day.

To set the FortiSandbox Cloud region in the GUI:
  1. Go to Security Fabric > Settings.
  2. In the Sandbox Inspection section, click FortiSandbox Cloud.
  3. Select a region from the FortiSandbox cloud region dropdown.

    The following regions are available:

    • Europe
    • Global
    • Japan
    • US
  4. Click Apply.

To set the FortiSandbox Cloud region in the CLI:
FGT_PROXY (global) # execute forticloud-sandbox region
0  Europe
1  Global
2  Japan
3  US
Please select cloud sandbox region[0-3]:3
Cloud sandbox region is selected: US

The separation of the FortiGate Cloud Log and FortiSandbox services are visible in the following example:

FGT_PROXY (global) # diagnose test application forticldd 3
