Upgrading firmware from the portal

FortiManager Cloud firmware can be upgraded. The FortiManager Cloud & Service portal displays a message when a new version of firmware is available.

The following types of upgrade are available:

  • Required

    For required firmware upgrades, you have a limited amount of time (such as two weeks) to upgrade the firmware after it is released. If you take no action after the grace period ends, you can no longer access the instance until you upgrade to the required firmware.

  • Optional

    For optional firmware upgrades, you can choose whether to upgrade to the latest firmware.

The primary account holder can upgrade firmware from the FortiManager Cloud & Service portal.
