Add support for multitenant FortiClient EMS deployments 7.2.1

When FortiClient EMS multitenancy is configured, a FortiClient EMS site is no longer unique using its serial number alone. The FortiGate configuration for FortiClient EMS connectors and related diagnostic commands have been enhanced to distinguish EMS sites using their serial number and tenant ID.

This feature includes the following enhancements:

  • Update config endpoint-control fctems to predefine five FortiClient EMS Fabric connectors that are referred to using numerical IDs from 1 to 5. Administrators can configure the status and name settings, and to display the tenant ID retrieved from FortiClient EMS sites with Manage Multiple Customer Sites enabled.

    config endpoint-control fctems
        edit {1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5}
            set status {enable | disable}
            set name <string>
            set server <string>
            set serial-number <string>
        next
    end

    A single tenant EMS server or the default site on a multitenant EMS server has a tenant ID consisting of all zeros (00000000000000000000000000000000).

    For more details about Enabling and configuring multitenancy, refer to the FortiClient EMS Administration Guide. The Manage Multiple Customer Sites setting is enabled on the System Settings > EMS Settings page in FortiClient EMS.

  • Update the FortiClient EMS Fabric connector to retrieve specific ZTNA tags from each configured FortiClient EMS site.

  • Update diagnose endpoint record list to return the EMS tenant id field retrieved from each respective FortiClient EMS server.

  • Update ZTNA and EMS debug commands to accept the EMS serial number and tenant ID as parameters.

    # diagnose endpoint lls-comm send ztna find-uid <uid> <EMS_serial_number> <EMS_tenant_id>
    # diagnose wad dev query-by uid <uid> <EMS_serial_number> <EMS_tenant_id>
To configure a FortiClient EMS Fabric connector:
config endpoint-control fctems
    edit 1
        set status enable
        set name "ems1"
        set server "ems1.test.com"
        set serial-number "FCTEMS0000000001"
        set tenant-id "00000000000000000000000000000000"
    next
end
To view FortiClient EMS Fabric connector configuration, including tenant ID:
# show endpoint-control fctems
config endpoint-control fctems
    edit 1
        set status enable
        set name "ems1"
        set server "ems1.test.com"
        set serial-number "FCTEMS0000000001"
        set tenant-id "00000000000000000000000000000000"
