Dynamic Mapping for SSID

Dynamically map IP subnets to FortiGate devices where the SSID credentials are the same, but the subnet is different. This saves time for administrators since they can use the same SSID profile, and change granular settings using per-device mapping.

To configure per-device mapping for SSID:
  1. Go to AP Manager > WiFi Profiles > SSID.
  2. Toggle Per-Device Mapping to ON.

  3. Create a new SSID or edit an existing SSID. Configure the following settings:
    1. Select the mapped FortiGate device.
    2. Specify the Mapped IP/Netmask.
    3. Toggle Mapped DHCP Server to ON. Click Create New and specify the Address Range.

    4. Select the SSID security mode as WPA Enterprise, WPA only Enterprise or WPA2 Only Enterprise, to override the authentication settings for mapped devices.

  4. When the SSIDs are being used for the mapped FortiGate device, install the per-device settings on FortiGate instead of the default settings in the SSID.
