Creating FSSO connectors
You can create SSO/identity connectors for Fortinet single sign-on (FSSO) agents.
FSSO is the authentication protocol by which users can transparently authenticate to FortiGate, FortiClient EMS, FortiAuthenticator, and FortiCache devices.
To create FSSO connectors:
- Go to Fabric View > Fabric > Connectors, and click Create New. The Create New Fabric Connector wizard is displayed.
- Under Endpoint/Identity, select Fortinet Single Sign-on Agent.
- Configure the following options, and click OK:
Type a name for the connector object. FSSO Agent
Complete the IP/Name, Password, and Port options for each FortiAuthenticator unit that will act as an SSO agent.
Select FSSO Groups
Specify whether to get FSSO groups from FSSO agents or via FortiGate.
User Groups LDAP Server
Select the name of the LDAP server to be used to get group information from the Directory Service.
(Optional) Toggle On to set per-device mappings between FortiGate units and FSSO agents, and then create the mappings. Toggle OFF to disable this feature.
Expand to view and configure advanced options for Fortinet single sign-on agents. For details, see the FortiOS CLI Reference.
To configure the FSSO connector as a FortiClient EMS Connector, select the Type as FortiClient EMS, IP/Name as the Windows Server's IP and turn SSL to ON. Click Apply and Refresh. The connector gets a list of tags from the EMS server and shows them as User Groups. This is similar to the Active Directory groups in Windows Server.
When you have an FSSO polling server configured on the FortiManager fabric connector, FortiManager will import and install all fsso-polling objects to managed FortiGate devices in the ADOM, including to devices that do not have references to the polling objects in their policies. user adgrp objects are also imported and installed if any fsso-polling objects are copied.
