Administration Guide

Advanced Settings

Go to System Settings > Advanced > Advanced Settings to view and configure advanced settings and download WSDL files.

Configure the following settings and then select Apply:

Offline Mode

Enabling Offline Mode shuts down the protocol used to communicate with managed devices. This allows you to configure, or troubleshoot, the FortiManager without affecting managed devices.The FortiManager cannot automatically connect to a FortiGate if offline mode is enabled.

ADOM Mode

Select the ADOM mode, either Normal or Advanced.

Advanced mode will allow you to assign a VDOM from a single device to a different ADOM, but will result in more complicated management scenarios. It is recommended only for advanced users.

Download WSDL file

Select the required WSDL functions then click the Download button to download the WSDL file to your management computer.

When selecting Legacy Operations, no other options can be selected.

Web services is a standards-based, platform independent, access method for other hardware and software APIs. The file itself defines the format of commands the FortiManager will accept as well as the responses to expect. Using the WSDL file, third-party or custom applications can communicate with the FortiManager unit and operate it or retrieve information, just as an administrator can from the GUI or CLI.
