Policy details

Policy Details assesses the selected host or user and displays the specific profile and policies that apply to the host at the moment the dialog was opened. User/host profiles have a time component and hosts may be connected at different locations. Therefore, the profile and policy displayed in Policy Details now, may be different than the profile and policies that display tomorrow. Policies displayed in this view include: network access policies, endpoint compliance policy, Supplicant Policies and Portal Policies. Each type of policy is displayed in a separate tab that also contains a Debug Log. This log can be sent to Customer Support for analysis.

To access Policy Details from Host View:

  1. Select Hosts > Host View.
  2. Search for the appropriate host.
  3. Select the host and either right-click or click Options.
  4. From the menu, select Policy Details.

To access Policy Details from user view:

  1. Select Users > User View.
  2. Search for the appropriate user.
  3. Select the user and either right-click or click Options.
  4. From the menu, select Policy Details.

Field

Definition

Profile Name

Name of the user/host profile that matched the selected host or user when it was assessed by policy details. This profile contains the required criteria for a connecting host, such as connection location, host or user group membership, host or user attributes or time of day. Host connections that match the criteria within the user/host profile are assigned the associated network access policy and network access configuration. See User/host profiles.

Policy Name

Name of the network access policy that currently applies to the host. See Network access policies.

Configuration Name

Name of the configuration that currently applies to the host. This is the configuration for the VLAN, CLI configuration, or VPN Group Policy for the host. See Network access configurations.

Access Value/VLAN

The specific network access that would be provided to the host, such as a VLAN ID or Name.

CLI

Name of the CLI configuration that currently applies to this host or the connection port. This field may be blank.

Debug Log

Configuration Name

Name of the configuration that currently applies to the host. This is the configuration for the VLAN, CLI configuration, or VPN Group Policy for the host. See Network access configurations.

Authentication Method

When enabled, the selected authentication method will override all other authentication methods configured in the portal, guest/contractor template, and Persistent Agent credential configuration.

Authentication Enabled

Indicates whether authentication is enabled. When enabled, the user is authenticated against a directory, the FortiNAC database, or a RADIUS server when logging on to access the network.

Time in Production before Authentication

When a user is waiting to authenticate, the host remains in the production VLAN until this time expires. If the user fails to authenticate within the time specified, the host is moved to the authentication VLAN.

Time Offline before Deauthentication

Once the host is offline, the user remains authenticated for this period of time. If the host comes back online before the time period ends the user does not have to reauthenticate. If the host comes back online after the time period ends, the user is required to re-authenticate.

Reauthentication Frequency

When set, this forces users to re-authenticate after the amount of time defined in this field passes since the last authentication regardless of the host's state. The host is moved to the authentication VLAN.
