CLI Reference

update-now

Use this command to initiate an update of the predefined robots, data types, suspicious URLS, and attack signatures used by your FortiWeb appliance.

FortiWeb appliances receive updates from the FortiGuard Distribution Network (FDN). The FDN is a world-wide network of FortiGuard Distribution Servers (FDS). FortiWeb appliances connect to the FDN by connecting to the FDS nearest to the FortiWeb appliance by its configured time zone.

The time required for the update varies with the availability of the updates, the size of the updates, and the speed of the FortiWeb appliance’s network connection. If event logging is enabled, and the FortiWeb appliance cannot connect successfully, it will log the message update failed, failed to connect any fds servers! or FortiWeb is unauthorized

To use this command, your administrator account’s access control profile must have either w or rw permission to the mntgrp area. For details, see Permissions.
