Settings

Field

Definition

Table configuration

Rank Buttons

Moves the selected configuration up or down in the list. If a user matches more than one configuration based on the selected directory group, the configuration with the higher rank is used. One is the highest rank.

Enable Buttons

Enables or disables the selected configuration. Disabled configurations are ignored when a user logs onto the network.

Table columns

Enabled

A green check mark indicates that the configuration is enabled. A red circle indicates that the configuration is disabled.

Rank

Configuration's rank in the list of configurations. Rank controls the configuration used if a user matches more than one configuration based on the selected directory group.

Name

Name for the configuration.

Register As

Indicates whether the host will be registered based on the login name of the user as a host or based on hostname as a device.

Applied Group

Directory group to which this configuration will be applied. Users within this group are registered in FortiNAC and scanned based on the rules in the associated configuration.

If this is not enabled in the configuration, the word Any is displayed, indicating that directory group is not used to select the appropriate configuration. It is recommended that such a configuration be placed at the end of the list as a catch all because it could apply to a large group of users.

Scan

Indicates whether scanning is enabled or disabled. When scanning is enabled, the scan can be repeated the next time the user logs in or out if the time interval shown has been exceeded.

Scan Policy

Scan used to evaluate the host when this configuration is applied. Either a specific scan or the scan contained in the endpoint compliance policy selected by FortiNAC based on the user/host profile.
