Administration Guide

Concurrent ADOM access

Concurrent ADOM access is controlled by enabling or disabling the workspace function. Concurrent access is enabled by default. To prevent multiple administrators from making changes to the FortiManager database at the same time and causing conflicts, the workspace function must be enabled.

When workspace mode is enabled, concurrent ADOM access is disabled. An administrator must lock the ADOM before they can make device-level changes to it, and only one administrator can hold the lock at a time, while other administrators have read-only access. Optionally, ADOM lock override can be enabled, allowing an administrator to unlock an ADOM that is locked by another administrator. See Locking an ADOM

When workspace is disabled, concurrent ADOM access is enabled, and multiple administrators can log in and make changes to the same ADOM at the same time.

To enable workspace mode, and disable concurrent ADOM access:
  1. Enter the following CLI commands:

    config system global

    set workspace-mode normal

    end

To disable workspace mode, and enable concurrent ADOM access:
  1. Enter the following CLI commands:

    config system global

    set workspace-mode disabled

    Warning: disabling workspaces may cause some logged in users to lose their unsaved data. Do you want to continue? (y/n) y

    end

After changing the workflow mode, your session will end and you will be required to log back in to the FortiManager.
