Public and private SDN

Fabric connectors to SDNs provide integration and orchestration of Fortinet products with SDN solutions. Fabric Connectors ensure that any changes in the SDN environment are automatically updated in your network. There is no need to manually reconfigure addresses and policies whenever changes to the cloud environment occur.

SDN Connectors can be configured on FortiManager to create dynamic firewall address objects that can be installed to managed FortiGate devices.

You can use the Fabric > External Connectors pane to create public and private SDN fabric connectors for the following products:

Once an SDN connector has been created, you can import address names from the products to the fabric connectors to automatically create dynamic firewall address objects that you can use in policies. Alternatively, you can manually create dynamic firewall address objects.
