CLI Reference

Permissions

Depending on the account that you use to log in to the FortiWeb appliance, you may not have complete access to all CLI commands or areas of the web UI.

Access profiles control which commands and areas an administrator account can access. Access profiles assign either:

  • Read (view access)
  • Write (change and execute access)
  • Both Read and Write
  • No access

to each area of the FortiWeb software. For details about configuring the access profile for an administrator account to use, see system accprofile.

Unlike other administrator accounts, the administrator account named admin exists by default and cannot be deleted. The admin administrator account is similar to a root administrator account. This administrator account always has full permission to view and change all FortiWeb configuration options, including viewing and changing all other administrator accounts. Its name and permissions cannot be changed. It is the only administrator account that can reset another administrator’s password without being required to enter that administrator’s existing password.

Set a strong password for the admin administrator account, and change the password regularly. By default, this administrator account has no password. Failure to maintain the password of the admin administrator account could compromise the security of your FortiWeb appliance.

For complete access to all commands, you must log in with the admin administrator account.
