FortiAP and FortiSwitch

FortiAP and FortiSwitch devices can be authorized in the Security Fabric with one click. After connecting a FortiAP or FortiSwitch device to an authorized FortiGate, it will automatically be listed in the topology tree.


If the default auto-auth-extension-device settings on the FortiAP or FortiSwitch have been modified, manual authorization in the Security Fabric may not be required.
