Administration Guide

Administrators

The System Settings > Admin menu enables you to configure administrator accounts, access profiles, remote authentication servers, and adjust global administrative settings for the FortiManager unit.

Administrator accounts are used to control access to the FortiManager unit. Local and remote authentication is supported, as well as two-factor authentication. Administrator profiles define different types of administrators and the level of access they have to the FortiManager unit, as well as its authorized devices.

If you use ServiceNow apps for FortiManager, we recommend creating an account to use for integration with the app. This account does not need to be a Super_User account and you don't need to set trusted hosts for this account.

Global administration settings, such as the GUI language and password policies, can be configured on the Admin Settings pane. See Global administration settings for more information.

In workflow mode, approval matrices can be create and managed on the Approval Matrix pane. See Workflow approval for more information.
