Integrating FortiManager management using SAML SSO

When a FortiGate is configured as the SAML SSO IdP, FortiManager can be added as an SP.

To configure FortiManager as a Fabric SP:
  1. On the root FortiGate, go to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors, and edit the Security Fabric Setup connector.

    4. For IdP Certificate, import the same certificate used on the root FortiGate.
    5. Click Apply.

  9. To verify that the configuration works, log out of FortiManager and log in using the Login via Single-Sign-On link.
