Cloud Management License

The Cloud Management License pane provides information about your FortiSwitch Cloud Management license, including how many FortiSwitch units are currently managed, how many total FortiSwitch units can be managed, license status, license start date, license expiration date, number of subscriptions, and license type.

NOTE: As of March 29, 2020, FortiSwitch units that were previously managed for free are no longer included in the numbers displayed in the Cloud Management License pane.

To update the information, select Refresh.

Use the Local Time Zone/UTC slider to control which time zone is displayed.

To control whether active licenses or all licenses are listed, select On or Off from the Show Active Licenses only buttons.

NOTE: If the current license is expired, a grace period is provided. At the end of the grace period, the FortiSwitch unit will be disconnected from the FortiSwitch Cloud. The FortiSwitch unit will continue to work with its last updated configuration, and you can manage the device by accessing the CLI or FortiSwitch GUI. However, it is recommended that the license is renewed, so the FortiSwitch unit can continue to be managed from FortiSwitch Cloud.
