Synchronizing with FortiManager

You can use the Sync to FortiManager option to send configuration scripts from SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA to FortiManager for additional configuration before installation on FortiGate devices. After the configuration scripts are synchronized to FortiManager, the Config Status of the device in SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA changes to Synchronized_to_FortiManager.

After FortiManager receives the scripts, you can use FortiManager to add additional configuration information, and then install the configuration changes to FortiGate devices. SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA periodically polls FortiGate devices for configuration information.

After changes from FortiManager are successfully installed on FortiGate devices, the Config Status of the devices in SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA changes to Synchronized.

This workflow is useful for a zero-touch provisioning (ZTP). You can use both SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA and FortiManager to provide configuration information, and the configuration is installed to FortiGate devices when they are online.

To synchronize with FortiManager:
  1. Go to Configuration > Device.
  2. Perform one of the following actions:
    Goal Method

    Send all configuration changes for all regions and devices to FortiManager.

    In the toolbar, from the Install all configuration menu, select Sync to FortiManager.

    Send all configuration changes for all devices in a region to FortiManager.

    For a region name, click the Sync region configuration to FortiManager button.

    Send configuration changes to FortiManager for a device.

    For a device, click the Sync to FortiManager button.

  3. View synchronization details for a device:
    1. When the Config Status column displays Synchronized_to_FortiManager for a device, click the Show Sync Details button.

      The Config to be Synchronized to Device dialog box is displayed.

    2. At the bottom of the pane, click the Copy Message button to copy the details.
    3. At the bottom of the pane, click Close to close the dialog box.
  4. Go to FortiManager and continue making configuration changes.
  5. In FortiManager, install the configuration to FortiGates.

    When the configuration installation is complete, and SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA receives confirmation that the configuration is successfully installed, the Config Status column displays Synchronized in SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA.
