Administration Guide

Device & Groups

The Device & Groups pane allows you to manage FortiAP devices that are controlled by FortiGate devices and are managed by the FortiManager.

FortiAP devices, listed in the tree menu, are grouped based on the controller that they are connected to. The devices can also be further divided into platform based groups within a controller.

FortiAP devices can be managed centrally, or per-device (see Creating ADOMs). In per-device mode, all WiFi profiles (SSIDs, AP profiles, and others), as well as managed FortiAP devices, are managed at the device level – there are no shared objects.

Additional configuration options and short-cuts are available using the right-click content menu. Right-click on the mouse on different parts of the navigation panes on the GUI page to access these context menus.

If workspace or workflow is enabled, the ADOM must be locked before changes can be made. See Locking an ADOM.

To manage FortiAP devices:
  1. Go to AP Manager.
  2. In the tree menu, go to Device & Groups > Managed FortiGate (#).
  3. (Optional) In the toolbar, click List > Group, to view devices in a group. See FortiAP groups

Managed APs are organized by their FortiGate controller and group.
