Permissions

Administrator, or access, profiles control what CLI commands an administrator can access by assigning read, write, or no access to each are of FortiOS. For information, see Administrator profiles.

Read access is required to view configurations. Write access is required to make configuration changes. Depending on your account's profile, you may not have access to all CLI commands. To have access to all CLI commands, an administrator account with the super_admin profile must be used, such as the admin account.

Accounts assigned the super_admin profile are similar to the root administrator account. They have full permission to view and change all FortiGate configuration options, including viewing and changing other administrator accounts.

To increase account security, set strong passwords for all administrator accounts, and change the passwords regularly.
