Security Fabric authorization information for FortiOS

When using FortiOS to create a Security Fabric connection to FortiManager, the process includes device authorization. The authorization process uses a browser popup window that requires communication to FortiManager. Depending on the topology, communication might fail, unless you specify the accessible management IP address and/or port of FortiManager that the browser popup window in FortiOS can use to connect with FortiManager.

FortiOS retrieves this information from FortiManager and makes it available to the browser popup window used for the authorization process.

To specify the authorization address and/or port:
  1. In FortiManager, go to System Settings > Admin > Admin Settings.
  2. Under Fabric Authorization, set the following options: 
    Authorization Address Type the GUI-accessible URL for FortiManager.
    Authorization Port If a non-default port is used, type the port number used for GUI access to FortiManager.
  3. Click Apply.
