The Device Manager module contains a database for each managed device. Each database contains the entire configuration of the managed device.
The database is created when the device is added to FortiManager, an FGFM connection is established between the device and FortiManager, and FortiManager retrieves the configuration from the managed device.
You can edit the database by using the following methods:
- Directly in Device Manager
- Indirectly by using the central management modules to provide changes to Device Manager
