Once you have registered your license under the designated account and activated it, the quotas will be added to your account.
You can create as many users as the quota in the Users/Max Users tab on the Dashboard page can support until your license expires.
When you add a user in a auth client, such as FortiGate, FortiAuthenticator, and FortiSandBox, FortiToken Cloud (FTC) will deduct one quota from your account. On the Dashboard page, the Users/Max Users will become 1/Max Users.
If you have run out of quota before your license expires, you can choose to load more quotas by purchasing a co-termed license or an independent license. Both types of licenses will increase your quota so that you can add more users before your license expires. The difference is that a co-termed license will be stacked on top of the original license and expire on the same date of the original license, while an independent license has its own SKU, activation and expiration dates, and level of services, etc.
When you activate a co-termed license on the support.fortinet.com page, the Account Services page will display the same Expiration Date as that of the original license. Co-termed licenses are handled by our Fortinet license renewals team. If you want to add quotas to your account with a co-termed license before your current time-based license expires, you must reach out to our license renewals team (email@example.com) for assistance.
For new licenses which are independent of any of your earlier licenses, the activation process is the same. The difference is the expiration date will be extended on the Account Services page. The new expiration date depends on the newly activated license. Once new quotas have been loaded to your account, you will be able to add more users to your account just as you do with a co-termed license.
The new function of quota is you can assign the custom amount of quotas to realms.
On the Realms page, you can assign any max amount of quota to any realms in the Edit Realm window. In the edit window, it has a toggle and an input box which is named Allocated User Quota. You can input the max amount of quota you want to assign to this realm, or just drag the toggle button. The maximum value is the total amount of quotas you have, the minimum value is zero. Zero means you don’t set the limit of quota in this realm, and you can create as many users as the amount of quota is available. If you input 10 for default realm, you only can create 10 users in auth clients are assigned to default realm.
