Zero-touch provisioning for FortiAP

Model devices used for ZTP can also be linked to model FortiSwitches, enabling provisioning of switch settings when first connected.

Pre-previsoning model FortiAP and link it to a model FortiGate
  1. Create a Model FortiGate device by using a real FortiGate serial number.

  2. Configure a model device interface IP, which will be used as the management IP by FortiManager.

  3. In AP Manager, create model APs on the model FortiGate by using a real FortiAP serial number.

  4. Connect the physical AP to the real FortiGate, and connect the FortiGate with FortiManager through the network.
  5. Log on to FortiGate. Go to Security Fabric > Settings, configure Central Management to FortiManager. (You can also use other methods to let FortiGate learn FortiManager IP and trigger FortiManager model device auto-link function).

  6. Click Apply to apply the settings and click OK to confirm the grant to FortiManager.

  7. Go back to FortiManager to double-check the auto-link function status with the real FortiGate.

  8. After the configuration is pushed to FortiGate, access FortiGate and verify that the FortiAP is enabled and displayed in Managed FortiAPs page.

  9. Log on to FortiManager. Go to AP Manager > Managed APs. The AP is now displayed as online.
