Administration Guide

Add devices

In FortiManager, you must add devices to Device Manager and authorize the devices for management before you can manage them.

On the managed device, you must also enable Central Management to allow FortiManager to manage the device.

You can use the Add Device wizard to add the following devices:

  • Online or offline devices
  • Online or offline FortiGate HA clusters
  • Security Fabric group

Another method is to import detected devices to FortiManager for management.

You can also configure a device to request management by FortiManager. These devices appear on the Device Manager pane in the unauthorized device list. For example, you can configure a FortiGate to be managed by FortiManager, and the FortiGate device is displayed in the unauthorized device list in FortiManager.
