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:
- Go to Dashboard > Status.
- The FortiGate Cloud widget shows 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:
- Go to System > FortiGuard.
- In the License Information table, find FortiSandbox Cloud and click Activate.
- Complete the prompts to obtain your license.
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:
- Go to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors and double-click the FortiSandbox Cloud card.
- Select a region from the Region dropdown.
The following regions are available:
- Click OK.
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:
