FortiGate devices

You can add FortiSandbox as a Security Fabric device in FortiGate. For information on how to configure FortiGate to send files to FortiSandbox, see the FortiGate guides in the Fortinet Document Library.

On FortiSandbox, go to Security Fabric > Device to see the FortiGate devices and VDOMs.

The communication protocol does not include a way for the FortiGate to notify FortiSandbox whether VDOMs are enabled. When VDOMs are disabled on the FortiGate, the files from FortiGate are marked with vdom=root.

Since the FortiGate does not explicitly send a list of possible VDOMs to FortiSandbox, FortiSandbox only knows about a VDOM after it receives a file associated with it. Each of the devices VDOMs listed on this page are displayed after the first file is received from that specific VDOM.

If VDOMs are enabled on FortiGate, you can select the checkbox to have new VDOMs inherit authorization based on the device level setting. If the FortiGate authorization is disabled, all VDOMs under it will not be authorized even if authorization is enabled for a VDOM.
