Testing the deployment

FortiWeb-VM auto scaling creates an ASG with lifecycle events attached to the group. To test the deployment, follow these steps:

  1. Check that an ASG (the name starting with fwbASG by default or the prefix you specified in Resource name prefix) was created after completion of the CloudFormation stack.

  2. Navigate to the Scaling Policies tab of the ASG, and execute a scale-out action.

    The scale-out action should trigger a lifecycle event for instantiating a FortiWeb instance.

  3. Follow step 2 for a similar scale-in action. Note that you must wait 300 seconds, as specified in the Scaling Cooldown period, between scale-out and scale-in actions.
