Enable the common account

Note

The Common Account is only available if the Use Portal Version 1 option is enabled on the Portal Configuration view. The Common Account can only be used with legacy portal pages.

Allows you to configure a generic or common account for visitors. If you check Enable in the Common Account section, visitors view a different login screen and do not enter a user name and password. The visitor enters only predefined information, such as first name, last name, telephone number, and so on. To be authenticated, the visitor uses the default user name and password that you specify in the Common Account section.

Configure the following parameters for Common accounts:

  • Enable — Enables default user name and password for guest access.
  • User Name — Specifies a default user name for the default guest account. You may choose a user name such as defaultguest to easily identify the statistics of all default guests.
  • Password — Specifies a default password for the default guest accounts. The guest does not enter this password. FortiNAC uses this password internally to authenticate the guest to an existing user entry.

 

  1. Select System > Portal Configuration.
  2. Click on the Version 1 Settings tab.
  3. In the Common Account section of the window select the Enable check box.
  4. Enter a default user name into the User Name field.
  5. Enter a default password into the Password field.
  6. Click Apply.

Reserved portal page file names

If you choose to create your own pages for the portal, you must avoid using any of the following file names. Files with the names listed below are used by FortiNAC for the pages distributed with the program. These files should never be modified outside of the Portal Configuration Content Editor. Future upgrades could overwrite those changes.
