Filter Lookup Improvement for SDN Connectors

In 6.0, when configuring dynamic address mappings for filters in AWS, FortiGate can query the filters automatically, while for other clouds the configuration is a manual process. In 6.2, the same capability is expanded to SDN connectors for Azure, GCP, OpenStack, Kubernetes, and AliCloud.

To use the improved filter lookup:
  1. Navigate to Policy & ObjectsAddresses.
  2. Create or edit an SDN connector type dynamic IP address.
    Supported SDN connector types include: AWS, Azure, GCP, OpenStack, Kubernetes, and AliCloud. The example below is for an Azure SDN connector.
  3. In the address Filter field, users can:
    • List all available filters in Omniselect.

      Screenshot displays a list of all filters.

    • Search the available filters in Omniselect.

      Screenshot displays a search of filters.

    • Create custom filters in Omniselect.
