Enabling management extension applications

Caution

Some management extension applications require a minimum amount of memory or a minimum number of CPU cores.

Before you enable a management extension application, review the requirements in the FortiManager Release Notes.

FortiManager provides access to applications that are released and signed by Fortinet.

Note

Only administrators with a Super_User profile can enable management extensions.

A CA certificate is required to install management extensions on FortiManager. See CA certificates.

Some management extension applications, such as FortiAIOps, require read-write JSON API access to be enabled. See Enabling read-write JSON API access.

To enable management extensions:
  1. Go to Management Extensions.
    • The first MEA used on FortiManager must be enabled using the CLI. After it is enabled and running, the Management Extensions pane is displayed in the GUI and subsequent MEAs can be enabled in the GUI following the steps below. For instructions on enabling your first MEA, see CLI for management extensions.
    • Some management applications are only available in the root ADOM or in specific ADOM versions.
  2. Click a grayed out tile to enable the application.

    Grayed out tiles represent disabled applications. In the following example, FortiSigConverter is enabled, and the other management applications are disabled.

  3. Click OK in the dialog that appears. It might take some time to install the application.
