FortiCare Register button

The FortiCare Register button is displayed in the GUI on various Fabric and device related pages and widgets.

  • To access the Register button on a topology page, click on or hover over the FortiGate device:

  • To access the button from the System > Firmware & Registration or System > HA page, right-click on the device name.

Note

The Register button is also accessible from tooltips for devices on the Managed FortiAPs and Managed FortiSwitches pages.

Clicking Register opens the Device Registration pane. If a device is already registered, the pane still opens and displays the device information.

Primary and secondary HA members can be registered to FortiCare at the same time from the primary unit by using the Register button. The secondary unit will register through the HA proxy.

  2. Hover over the HA member and click Register. The Device Registration pane opens.
  3. Select the device and click Register.
