CLI Reference

system autoupdate schedule

Use this command to configure how the FortiWeb appliance will access the Fortinet Distribution Network (FDN) to retrieve updates. The FDN is a world-wide network that delivers FortiGuard service updates of predefined robots, data types, suspicious URLS, IP address reputations, and attack signatures used to detect attacks such as:

  • Cross-site scripting (XSS)
  • SQL injection
  • Common exploits

Alternatively, you can manually upload update packages. For details, see the FortiWeb Administration Guide:

HTTP://docs.fortinet.com/fortiweb/admin-guides

FortiWeb appliances connect to the FDN by connecting to the Fortinet Distribution Server (FDS) nearest to the FortiWeb appliance based on its configured time zone.

In addition to manual update requests, FortiWeb appliances support an automatic scheduled updates, by which the FortiWeb appliance periodically polls the FDN to determine if there are any available updates.

If you want to connect to a specific FDS, you must enter system autoupdate override. If your FortiWeb appliance must connect through a web proxy, you must also enter system autoupdate tunneling.

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.
