After you create fabric connectors, they display in Universal Connector MEA. You can turn each fabric connector on and off. When a fabric connector is toggled On, the fabric connector communicates with the external application, and FortiManager can receive and use the retrieved information.
When a fabric connector is toggled Off, it does not communicate with the external application, and no information can be retrieved and used by FortiManager. In the following example, a Guardicore fabric connector has been created in Universal Connector MEA, and the fabric connector is turned off.
