CLI Reference

get

The get command displays parts of your FortiWeb appliance’s configuration in the form of a list of settings and their values.

Unlike show, get displays all settings, even if they are still in their default state.

For example, you might get the current DNS settings:

get system dns

primary : 192.0.2.19

secondary : 0.0.0.0

domain : example.com

Notice that the command displays the setting for the secondary DNS server, even though it has not been configured, or has reverted to its default value.

Also unlike show, unless used from within an object or table, get requires that you specify the object or table whose settings you want to display.

For example, at the root prompt, this command would be valid:

get system dns

and this command would not be valid:

get

Like show, depending on whether or not you have specified an object, get may display one of two different outputs, either the configuration that you have just entered but not yet saved, or as it currently exists on the flash disk.

For example, immediately after configuring the secondary DNS server setting but before saving it, get displays two different outputs (differences highlighted in bold):

FortiWeb# config system dns

FortiWeb (dns)# set secondary 192.0.2.10

FortiWeb (dns)# get

primary : 192.0.2.19

secondary : 192.0.2.10

domain : example.com

FortiWeb (dns)# get system dns

primary : 192.0.2.19

secondary : 0.0.0.0

domain : example.com

The first output from get indicates the value that you have configured but not yet saved; the second output from get indicates the value that was last saved to disk.

If you were to now enter end, saving your setting to disk, get output for both syntactical forms would again match. However, if you were to enter abort at this point and discard your recently entered secondary DNS setting instead of saving it to disk, the FortiWeb appliance’s configuration would therefore match the second output, not the first.

If you have entered settings but cannot remember how they differ from the existing configuration, the two different forms of get, with and without the object name, can be a useful way to remind yourself.

Most get commands, such as get system dns, are used to display configured settings. You can find relevant information about such commands in the corresponding config commands in the config chapter.

Other get commands, such as system performance, are used to display system information that is not configurable. This chapter describes this type of get command.

The get commands require at least read (r) permission to applicable administrator profile groups.

Although not explicitly shown in this section, for all config commands, there are related get and show commands which display that part of the configuration. get and show commands use the same syntax as their related config command, unless otherwise mentioned. For syntax examples and descriptions of each configuration object, field, and option, see config .

When ADOMs are enabled, if you log in as admin, the top level of the shell changes: the two top level items are get global and get vdom:

  • get global displays settings that only admin or other accounts with the prof_admin access profile can change.
  • get vdom displays each ADOM and its respective settings.

This menu and CLI structure change is not visible to non-global accounts; ADOM administrators’ navigation menus continue to appear similar to when ADOMs are disabled, except that global settings such as network interfaces, HA, and other global settings do not appear.
