Recommended IPsec templates

FortiManager includes recommended IPsec templates that come preconfigured with FortiManager best practices recommendations for use within your environment. These templates can be used to simplify deployment of SD-WAN interconnected sites or to create IPsec VPN for FortiGate devices.

Once a new IPsec template has been created from a recommended template, it can be edited, deleted, and/or cloned.

Meta fields can be used when configuring a recommended template's required fields to ensure that fields like Local ID are unique when the template is assigned to multiple devices. See Meta Fields.
