FortiGate devices

SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA supports FortiGate devices. For SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA to configure and manage SD-WAN networks on FortiGate devices, the devices must be added to both FortiManager and SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA.

After the FortiGate devices are added to both products, SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA works with FortiManager to configure and monitor SD-WAN networks on the devices. See also How SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA works with FortiManager.

In general, you should add devices to both products in the following order:

  1. FortiManager
  2. SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA

However, in some cases you can add FortiGate devices to SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA first. For example, see Adding model devices and Importing devices.
