Web Apps

The Web Apps page enables you to manage web applications as auth clients. You can open the Web Apps page by clicking Auth Clients > Web Apps on the main menu.

The following table highlights the information on the Web Apps page.

Parameter

Description

Name

The name of a web app.

Client ID

A unique, read-only ID that FTC has generated for an auth client.

Count The number of FTC end-users on the auth client.
Realm Name The name of the realm to which the auth client is assigned.
Secret

Part of the secret.

Note: Clicking the button regenerates the secret for the auth client.

Last Update The time when the auth client was last updated.

Tool Bar

The tool bar slides in from the right end of the row when you hover the cursor over an entry. It provides the following tools:

  • Edit—Edits the settings of a web app as auth client
  • Delete—Deletes the web app as auth client.

Add an auth client

When a new auth client is added, FTC assigns it the default name "MyAuthClient" which can be edited. If you add more auth clients of the same type, FTC will append a sequence number starting with "1" to the subsequent auth client names, e.g., "MyAuthClient1", "MyAuthClient2", and so on.

You need to select a realm from the list of realms in your account and assign the new auth client to it. Otherwise, the auth client will be assigned to the default realm. You must assign the auth client to a custom realm to add end-users to it.

When creating an auth client, FTC generates a unique read-only Client ID. It also generates the API credentials which the auth client needs when accessing the FortiToken Cloud API server.

Caution

FortiToken Cloud API is accessible to licensed accounts only; it is not available for free trial accounts.

  1. In the upper-left corner of the Auth Clients > Web Apps page, click Add Web App to open the Add New Web App dialog.
  2. Type a unique name over the default name.
  3. Select a realm, or leave it to the default.
  4. Select an adaptive auth profile.
  5. Click Add. A window opens, showing the information of the newly added auth client.
  6. Click OK.

    • Send to email—Sends the secret to the email address that you have specified. You must open the email to retrieve it. The email message contains instructions on how to use the secret.
  4. Click OK.
