Registering FortiSwitch to FortiCloud

After authorizing a FortiSwitch, administrators can register the FortiSwitch to FortiCloud directly from the FortiOS GUI.

To register the FortiSwitch in the GUI:
  1. Go to WiFi & Switch Controller > Managed FortiSwitch and ensure the Topology view is selected.
  2. In the topology, right-click on an unregistered device and click Registration.

  3. Complete the device registration wizard:
    1. Click Register to proceed.

    2. Enter the FortiCloud account information and click Submit.

      The registration information is submitted to FortiCare, and FortiOS attempts to collect the registration status from FortiGuard. Since FortiGuard and FortiCare synchronize periodically, the registration status may not update immediately (it may take up to a few hours).

    3. Click Close.
  4. After a while, go back to WiFi & Switch Controller > Managed FortiSwitch.
  5. Right-click on the device and click Registration. The device is shown as Registered to the corresponding FortiCloud account.

To register the FortiSwitch in the CLI:
# diagnose forticare direct-registration product-registration -N S124DP3X15000000 -a xxxx@fortinet.com -p LDAP -T "CA" -R "other" -e 1
