    1. Go to System Settings > Security Fabric > Settings.
    2. Click the toggle to enable the device (Enable Security Fabric).
    3. Enter the FortiGate Root IP Address.

    4. Click Apply.
  3. Authorize the FortiTester in FortiOS:
    1. Go to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors.
    2. In the topology tree, click the highlighted FortiTester serial number and select Authorize.

      The Security Fabric widget on the dashboard also updates when the FortiTester is authorized.
