Use Tcl script to access FortiManager’s device database or ADOM database

You can use Tcl script to access FortiManager’s device database or ADOM database (local database). The option to run a TCL script on remote FortiGate directly (via CLI) should be still used. However, for any portion of a script that needs to be run on a local database, FortiManager uses a syntax within the TCL script exec_ondb to define it.

Example 1:

Run the Tcl script on an ADOM database for a specify policy package. For example, creating new a policy or object:

Syntax

puts [exec_ondb "/adom/<adom_name>/pkg/<pkg_fullpath>" "embedded cli commands" "# "]

Usage

puts [exec_ondb "/adom/52/pkg/default" "

config firewall address

edit port5_address

next

end

" "# "]

Example 2:

Run the Tcl script on the current ADOM database for a specify policy package. For example, creating a new policy and object:

Syntax

puts [exec_ondb "/adom/./pkg/<pkg_fullpath>" "embedded cli commands" "# "]

or

puts [exec_ondb "/pkg/<pkg_fullpath>" "embeded cli commands" "# "]

Usage

puts [exec_ondb "/adom/./pkg/default" "

config firewall address

edit port5_address

next

end

" "# "]

Example 3:

Run Tcl script on a specific device in an ADOM:

Syntax

puts [exec_ondb "/adom/<adom_name>/device/<dev_name>" "embedded cli commands" "# "]

Usage

puts [exec_ondb "/adom/v52/device/FGT60CA" "

config global

config system global

set admintimeout 440

end

end

" "# "]

Example 4:

Run Tcl script on current devices in an ADOM:

Syntax

puts [exec_ondb "/adom/<adom_name>/device/." "embedded cli commands" "# "]

Usage

puts [exec_ondb "/adom/v52/device/." "

config global

config system global

set admintimeout 440

end

end

" "# "]

exec_ondb cannot be run on the Global ADOM.
